Final Day - 8th Grade Washington D.C. Trip
On our trip we had an amazing and unique experience that one could only find in such a special city. From the tour of the monuments and the tour of the Pentagon we were able to see many exciting and historical places. Having the opportunity to visit the Newseum and the Holocaust Museum, were engaging and eye-opening. From seeing the Renwick Gallery, to handing out supplies to the homeless, we learned how to give back. We've managed to do so much in the past few days, we are excited to be able to share all of our stories with our families. We feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to visit Washington D.C. with HMJDS before we graduate!
How is olive oil made? Do green and black olives come from different trees? What is the difference between a Menorah and a Hanukiah? These are just some of the questions that were posed this past week when the first grade class came to the Makerspace with Hamorah Nechamit to learn about making olive oil.
