JKHA Holds School-Wide Siyum Day

JKHA held a school-wide Yom Siyum, tapping into the excitement of the broader Jewish community and connecting them to the gathering of over 100,000 Jews at the Siyum HaShas. In preparation, lower school students were introduced to the concept of a siyum in general and the Siyum HaShas. They were challenged to read all of Tehillim over the course of the day in their classrooms and at lunchtime. Learning in chavrutot, all of middle school completed Pirkei Avot today, eight times (over 800 mishnayot!) in a thrilling half hour session, complete with questions about what they learned! The JKHA parent community submitted a list of over 50 cholim that was shared with all the JKHA students to keep in mind so they can learn in their merit.

Prior to the middle school learning session, the students watched a video about the Siyum HaShas and heard from JKHA/RKYHS parent Jonathan Teitelbaum, a Daf Yomi learner who participated in the Siyum HaShas. Both divisions of JKHA then came together for a siyum to complete both Tehillim and Pirkei Avot, followed by a Chanukah chagiga with singing and dancing. The program concluded with a sweet end to their learning with a donut bar for middle school and a french fry bar for lower school.
