Rosh Chodesh at The Girls Division
On Wednesday, we had an event in honor of Rosh Chodesh Teves. As we all know, Teves contains the fast of Asara B’Teves. On Asara B’Teves, the walls of Yerushalayim were surrounded which later led to the destruction of the Beis Hamikdash, which we have learned occurred as a result of Sinas Chinam. Therefore, the theme of our Rosh Chodesh Teves event was Achdus. We participated in many activities with the purpose of learning about and internalizing Achdus. We played Hugga Bear where we all hugged each other every time the music stopped and a number was called out. Then, in groups of two, we designed an outline of a person as different types of Jews, from which we created a chain and hung them up in the school to symbolize Achdus amongst different Jews. Lastly, for the last day of Chanukah, we filled our own doughnuts. It was a lot of fun!
