5th Grade Philadelphia Trip
After studying about the Declaration of Independence and the colonists’ path to independence, the Fifth Grade took a field trip to Philadephia. They were first treated to a program at Congregation Mikveh Israel Synagogue, one of the oldest congregations in the United States. Then, KSMS parents and students continued on their own to tour Philadelphia’s historic district. Some highlights included the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall (where the Declaration of Independence was signed), the U.S. Mint, and the brand new National Museum of American Jewish History, the nation’s only museum dedicated exclusively to collecting, preserving, and interpreting artifacts pertaining to the American Jewish experience. Everyone had a fun and educational time.
