Yom Ha'atzmaut 5773: Israel @ 65

On Monday night, April 15, the new high school auditorium was filled with people who came to celebrate Israel's 65th birthday. The evening began with a special maariv: Tefillah Arbit Hagigit and included a "Letter to Israel" address by Mrs. Miriam Wielgus, Jewish History Department chairperson in the high school, an Israel video, beautiful singing by the choir and the Chamber choir led by Mr. Brian Gelfand, performed. The program closed with a Senior Choir Hebrew rendition of "One Day More" from Les Miserables and Hatikva. On Tuesday morning, the high school enjoyed the program as part of the Yom Ha'atzmaut celebration that culminated in faculty and students singing and dancing in honor of Medinat Yisrael. Thank you to Mrs. Shatzkes and Mrs. Winkler and everyone involved for their wonderful work. ~ Norman Greenberg
