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

SAR Academy commemorated Yom HaShoah as a school community. In the morning students in grades three through eight gathered on the steps for a powerful program which began with the sound of the siren and a moment of silence. Students were privileged to welcome survivors, children and grandchildren of survivors to light nerot zikaron in memory of the six million Jews who perished in the Holocaust. Together they recited Tehillim and Kel Maleah for the lives lost and sang “Ani Ma’amin” and “Acheinu” in unison—an uplifting moment for everyone. The program concluded with “Hatikvah,” transitioning towards a hopeful future. Throughout the day, students had the unique opportunity to hear the personal stories of the Shoah directly from the visitors. The Middle school also participated in a beautiful program which combined singing and text to help bring to mind those who perished. Every hour, students and faculty stood in silence to honor and remember the six million as the names of SAR family members who perished in the Holocaust were recited. Thank you to all who participated in the tekes and spoke to the students.
