HIGHLIGHTS GRAND FINALE The year-end celebration for the second grade’s trailblazing 39 Melachos program was attended by parents and grandparents of the talmidim, who all starred in a video that was shown at the event. The film depicted the boys performing all of the melachos, including some of the less- familiar aspects of farming (related to sidura d’pas) and weaving. The walls of the hallways were covered with the talmidim’s original artwork depicting the melachos. The talmidim sang beautiful Shabbos songs and each one was presented with a copy of a beautiful, oversize, full-color English sefer on the subject. THE MEASURE OF THE MISHKAN When two fourth grade classes were studying the parshios that describe the construction of the Mishkan, they used a creative method to demonstrate its actual size: themselves! Rav Eliahu Milstein’s class (pictured) modeled the Ohel Moed on the Yeshiva’s promenade, while Rav Shalom Rosen’s class fanned out over the baseball fields as well as the promenade to ‘construct’ the entire Chatzeir (courtyard) of the Mishkan.
