Tamim Academy NYC Enjoys Shushan Purim

Shushan Purim was a day for stretching out one more day of Purim fun at Tamim Academy NYC. In the morning, the Tamim NYC learners visited their local 24th Police Precinct where they met with Officer Jones and his team. With questions they had prepared in advance, the children found out how to become a police officer, how the police help us, why we have undercover officers, what behaviors can make us unsafe, why someone might be arrested and what special gadgets are in police cars that make them different from regular cars. The police chief made an unexpected visit to the precinct and shared some toys with the children before everyone had a chance to sit in a police car and turn on the flashing lights! In the afternoon of Shushan Purim, the young police cadets became budding artists. After first studying and learning about the artist Pablo Picasso, in particular his asymmetric portrait style, the Tamim artists created their own amazing and unique Picasso-style self-portraits. These amazing art pieces have now taken pride of place in the Tamim NYC art gallery.
