Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

JKHA middle school opened their Lag B’Omer with impactful words from teachers about how to internalize and put into practice the lessons of Lag B’Omer and “v’ahavta lreicha kamocha” in memory of those lives lost in Meron and for a refuah shelaima of the injured. Students then participated in a Lag B’Omer kumzitz (complete with marshmallows) around the fire pit. Thank you to Rabbi Elie Mischel of Suburban Torah in Livingston for enhancing the seventh and eighth grade boys kumzitz.

JKHA early childhood and lower school learned all week long about Lag B’Omer. They learned about Rabbi Akiva and the importance of v’ahavta l’reicha kamocha, as well as all about Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai. First grade made projects that depicted the carob tree and stream that Hashem made that sustained Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai. Second grade culminated their learning about lag baomer with their beautiful handmade medurot (bonfires). Earlier they brainstormed ways to practice being a good friend and each student created a beautiful “friendship flower” based on the ideas that they came up with. All of the students enjoyed a bonfire complete with stories, dancing and roasted marshmallows.
