The Best Day Ever!


“This was our best day ever!” These words echoed through the first grade hallway at Krieger Schechter the other day. The children had just returned from a “Sukkah Hop” where they visited the sukkot of two of their classmates. In each sukkah various aspects of the holiday were discussed. The discussions were followed by a healthy snack. In addition to visiting the sukkot, the children participated in relay races using a lemon (a pseudo etrog) and a spoon and created decorations for the sukkah. Upon their return to the classrooms, our first graders created their own edible sukkot. The entire program was planned and implemented by three of our first grade families. We are grateful for their creativity and generosity!
