By Avi F. (Grade 6) In this week's parasha, we continue to learn about the process for purifying the person who has צרעת (leprosy). We are told about the ritual the Kohen has to perform on the day a person becomes טהור, pure. The ritual requires two birds, a cedar stick, hyssop, a string of red wool, and shaving of the person's head. Afterward, the Torah tells us...

By Rabbi Justin Pines, MS Mashgiach Ruchani "Mah Nishtana Ha Lila Hazeh Mikol Haleilot?' Why is this night different from all other nights? Why is the seder so focused on questions? We have a mitzvah from the Torah for parents to teach their children about yetziat mitzrayim. It doesn't say anything about questions. So why is there such a large focus on questions?...

The whole room felt the love as The Lion King roared onto stage at the Upper School. With only two months left in their high school careers, the seniors strengthened their bond as they performed their Senior Play for a packed auditorium. We're overcome with PRIDE!

By Avi F. (Grade 6) In this weeks Parasha, Parashat תזריע, we learn about many different things. In the beginning, we learn about what a mother has to do after giving birth. We learn which Korbanot she has to bring, and what procedures she has to go through depending on if she gave birth to a boy or girl. Then we start learning...

By Rabbi Justin Pines, MS Mashgiach Ruchani Sometimes - often - life imitates Torah. I was watching a big college basketball game last night, Duke against University of Central Florida (UCF). Duke, who has the best player in the country, Zion Williamson, and is considered to be one of the best teams, was losing at the end. The coach, Mike Krzyzewski, perhaps one of the greatest coaches of all time...

By Ezra A. (Grade 6) At the beginning of the parasha, it says, "ויהי ביום השמיני קרא משה לאהרון ולבניו ולזיקני ישראל" and then Moshe says to Aharon, ​"קח לך עגל בן בקר לחטאת ועיל לעולה תמימים". Moshe wants Aharon to bring all of these sacrifices and gives him a list of what he needs to do. After, he tells him everything, it says: "ויאמר משה אל אהרון קרב אל המיזבח ועשה את חטאתך". Why does Moshe add this extra request of Aharon to approach to the מיזבח? Rashi says...

Even our youngest students were captivated by the amazing performances we had of Tubby the Tuba! The book Tubby the Tuba was written by Paul Tripp in 1954, and we are grateful that his son David Tripp narrated the book for us. If you aren't familiar with this classic story, it is about the adventures of a tuba named Tubby. "All day long Tubby plays oompah, oompah with his orchestra, but what he really wants is to dance with the pretty little tune. Tubby finds inspiration from a frog down by the river. He learns that everyone deserves to play his own melody..." To view the performance...
