Spring Season Achdut
Throughout the year, and in this season in particular, the lives of our students are so different from the lives of their peers in Israel. The Israeli kids just participated in 1 seder, they will have entirely different experiences throughout the “yamim” (try as we might to mirror the awesomeness of the “yamim” in Israel) and as of this week we will even be reading a different Parsha on Shabbat.
I find myself so often saying things like, “In Israel, they…” and “we celebrate this way”. What can we do with our students that doesn’t highlight differences, but fosters a real sense of Achdut with our fellow Jew living in Israel – and everywhere else in the world – despite our often differing experiences?
