Shana Tova From Westchester Day School

Westchester Day School has been abuzz with the sounds of Rosh Hashanah preparation. As the new year kicked off, students were busy learning about the meaning of the approaching Jewish new year.

The youngest students tasted apples with honey and learned special songs for the chag. Rabbi Klinger, head of Judaic Studies visited every classroom daily to blow the shofar, as is customary in the month of Elul leading up to Rosh Hashanah. Students learned about the different sounds a shofar can make and Judah Linder, a fifth grader, blew the shofar at the very first back to school assembly to set the tone for an exciting year at WDS.

Elementary school students learned about the tefillot of Rosh Hashanah and in third grade students learned about all of the Jewish months, understanding the Jewish calendar as they prepare for a new year to begin. Shana Tova!
