JKHA Kicks Off Jam-Packed Yom Ha’atzmaut With Schoolwide Concert

What a day celebrating Eretz Yisrael! The joy of Yom Ha’atzmaut was shared across screens and in homes all over the JKHA school community. The day kicked off with a festive musical Hallel and a joyous concert with Jewish music star Duvie Shapiro, live from Israel. It was great to see all the smiling, dancing faces of students and families.

Throughout the rest of the day, early childhood and lower school students went on “trips” to Israel, learned about what Yom Ha’atzmaut is like in Israel from the Federation of Greater MetroWest Rishonim Oz and Hadar (live from Israel!), participated in an Israel game show with Digital Dov and enjoyed art and music class. Classroom projects included writing what they love about Israel in writing journals, making brochures for Israel, having a “picnic” together in Israel and more.

Middle school classes followed up their concert excitement with more Yom Ha’atzmaut programs. One of the highlights of Yom Ha’atzmaut every year in middle school is the Kochavei Kushner talent show—and this year was no different. Students had the chance to watch rousing renditions of Israeli songs performed by their peers and teachers. Students completed their Yom Ha’atzmaut celebration with a live game show filled with Israel trivia.
