On Rosh Chodesh Sh’vat, Tamim Academy NYC enjoyed a wonderful Grandparents’ and special visitors’ tefillah and breakfast. With their classroom filled with grandparents, parents and baby siblings, the Tamim NYC learners led Rosh Chodesh tefillah and hallel with their sweet voices. Accompanied on the guitar by Pearl Stroh, the Chabad Early Learning Center Director, the students concluded tefillah with their special daily prayers for Israel, singing Esa Eina, and Kol Hamola Kulo, as well as a song to mark the start of their Tu B’Shvat learning. Following tefilla, everyone enjoyed a special fresh fruit and rugelach breakfast together with their parents and grandparents. Community is valued and prioritized at Tamim Academy NYC throughout the year with special events and programming arranged for families to be able to socialize, learn together and support each other.
“It was so special coming as a grandparent and seeing how much of the tefillah the children knew and sang so enthusiastically,” reported Tamim NYC grandparent, Rivka Kugel. “And the fresh fruit breakfast with our grandchildren was a real treat for us at the end. We are so grateful to all the wonderful teachers at Tamim Academy NYC for giving us this opportunity to share such an enjoyable time with our granddaughter and with the other proud Tamim NYC grandparents!”
