On behalf of the Aardvark Israel staff, we wanted to wish you all a Shana Tova Umetuka! May this year be a successful, fruitful year. May this year be healthier, happier, full of joy and good deeds.
Our students wanted to share their Shana Tova messages as well; click on the image to watch them!
Rabbi Liad, Our Jewish Life Coordinator, shared some thoughts about Rosh Hashana and his vision for new beginnings:
“This week we celebrate the Jewish new year, Rosh Hashana. Not many are aware that according to the Jewish tradition it was on this day thousands of years ago that the very first human, Adam, was created. Immediately upon his creation, Adam realized that the soil had not yet sprouted any vegetation, as it had yet to rain. As a result, he offered the very first prayer, which caused the very first rainfall of all time.
On Rosh Hashana, we celebrate the birthday of mankind. And as we do, it is worth recalling the first action that man did in this world. He came and immediately saw the need to transform his barren surroundings with the waters of life so that it sprouted forth in every direction. As we celebrate the new year, we simultaneously recommit to this important mission; bringing life to the lifeless and building a Garden of Eden on Earth.”
Last Thursday, led by Rabbi Liad, our Selah (Jewish Enrichment Track) students created their own Shofar for the holidays
Once again, we wish you a Shana Tova Umetuka!
