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!
We’ve been in school for five weeks already and this week we turn our attention to the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. Read about Heilicher staff customs to welcome the New Year on the Heilicher Blog.
After graduation, Heilicher alumna Simone P. encountered an uncomfortable situation at basketball camp. She decided to take a brave step to educate the camp about Jewish history related to an unintentional, yet offensive, long-standing camp practice.
Sixth graders had the opportunity to review the basics of the Tishrei holidays with Rabbi Max Davis and learn a few new things.
