On Monday, we held a special assembly to recognize Yom Hazikaron – Israel Remembrance Day. On Tuesday, we recognized Yom Ha'atzmaut – Israel Independence Day – in a special seminar.

This can be a particularly reflective time of year, and we encourage students and families to remember the past, the present, and our hopes for peace in the future.

Updates and Announcements

Barnyard Animal De-Stress Zone!

With final exams around the corner, Kehillah students were able to take some time yesterday to de-stress with some barnyard animals in the Kikar!

Here is a message from Dina Goldman, who is currently completing her senior project with Animal Assisted Happiness, which provided some of the animals for the event:

Animal Assisted Happiness is a farm in the Baylands with the mission of providing animal therapy to kids with needs. It's a wonderful place and always needs volunteers! To volunteer, you need to attend an hour-long orientation, then you are able to volunteer at morning & evening farm and garden chores, Open hours, and go on visits to schools and other organizations. There are also leadership opportunities with the Youth Ambassador program if you would like to get further involved.
