Is Yom Kippur a Children’s Holiday?

I used to think it wasn’t.

But as I watch my students learn the steps to saying they are sorry, and begin to understand the concept of prayer, I’m not so sure anymore.

In their folders you will find a Machzor (Yom Kippur prayer book) that we created.

This project caused a bit of a challenge. 

One page of our Machzor is always titled “Let’s Be Friends.”  In previous years, I’d take sweet pictures of the students with their arms around each other.  Can’t do that in Covid times!

So this children helped me create this masterpiece:


We are friends.
אנחנו חברים Anachnu Chaverim

You will also find a letter to you from your child. 

May it be a good year for all.
