+ Happy birthday, Israel
Students at The Gan School at Temple Sinai celebrated Israel’s 65th birthday, which was April 16, by taking an imaginary plane ride to Israel. Children created passports and participated in hands-on activities, including visiting the Dead Sea and writing notes on the Western Wall.
