This semester of 7th grade has been going really great since the schedule change. The students seem to be more engaged and we are doing a lot of learning. Tonight in class we have a CBE 10th Grader coming in to speak to our 7th graders about an organization she founded called Teens Resist.
After the tefillah (prayer), mitzvot & Torah classes came to a close this trimester, students participated in an informative, interactive session led by representatives from the NYC Commission on Human Rights.
Last week 7th Graders were visited by an educator from Hazon! Hazon is at the forefront of an evolving conversation about how American Jewish life can be strengthened by engagement with food, the outdoors, and the environment.
