Special Assembly with Upper School Jewish Student Union Panelists

On Friday, Oct. 4, Middle School students gathered for a guest presentation by student panelists from the Upper School Jewish Student Union, facilitated by Middle School history teacher Sarah Levin-Katchinskiy and Director of Libraries Sarah Davis. Our student panelists and faculty facilitators provided middle schoolers with an introduction to the Jewish holidays that are celebrated at this time of year, and they also shared the ways in which they and their families celebrate various Jewish holidays and special events, such as bar and bat mitzvahs. We appreciated our Upper School JSU students’ leadership in making possible this opportunity to learn more about the rich cultural traditions that form part of our Viewpoint School community!
