The Ohr Chadash Religious School First Annual Pre Rosh Hashanah Family Seder
On Sunday Morning, September 17th, the Ohr Chadash Religious School held our First Annual Pre Rosh Hashanah Family Seder. Our many Students, Parents, Teachers, Board Members, and Rabbi Wise, all joined together for a most wonderful Pre High Holiday Program.
Our event kicked off with Rabbi Wise delivering a beautiful and most meaningful lesson on the true meaning of the Jewish New Year. We then lit candles learning the Rosh Hashanah Blessings, enjoyed a Grape Juice Kiddush again reciting the Rosh Hashanah version, and then it was on to the tasty “Rosh Hashanah Treats of the Season”.
We enjoyed Round Raisin Challah dipped in honey, apples in honey, pomegranates, dates and carrots. In addition we learned the reasons behind the custom for eating each of these tasty foods with our very enthusiastic students and their parents participating in answering key questions.
Our event was capped off by an outstanding Shofar Blowing by Rabbi Uri, one of our teachers, as our students looked on in Amazement!
Yasherkoach & Todah Rabah To All Of Our Many Participants.
From All Of Us To All Of You……Shanah Tovah U’Metukah.
