Yom Ha'atzmaut 2012

Yom Ha-Zikaron and Yom Ha'atzma'ut are always very special days here at the MHA.  This year, however, they seemed to rise to a whole new level.  Starting with the  programming on Yom Ha-Zikaron led by theTorah MiTzion Kollel and the b'not sherut to the choir performance and flag dance of our students at the communal celebration at Baron Hirsch, and from student visits to replicas of the Kotel, Avraham's tent, and an Israeli Army base to pita making and carnival contests, it was one meaningful, educational, and fun-filled experience after another.  Of course, Yom Ha'atzma'ut was capped off with our annual march from the school to Baron Hirsch which was led this year by our talented High School band.

I doubt there was a student in the school, from PreK3 through 12th grade, who didn't leave last week's programming feeling closer to our land, its history, and its people than they ever have before.
