The Lower School welcomed Elul this past week with an innovative program run by Moreh Shimshon. All students in Grades 1 through 6 were divided into teams and had to collaborate on two separate tasks: to fill their respective shofarot with tefillot for the new year, and to create some sort of group presentation on a particular Elul related theme which they had been assigned.
It was a pleasure to watch students of all different ages working together, thinking together, and laughing together in a relaxing and fun, yet highly educational setting. It was even more amazing to see the presentations they came up with just a short burst of creative brainstorming.
