Rabbi Alperowitz teaches students about Jewish traditions

October 12, 2017

Rabbi Yekusiel Alperowitz and his wife Devorah came to our Brewster campus last week and met with four Latham students who have Jewish backgrounds.  They discussed Jewish traditions, including the recent high holidays and upcoming Sukkot celebrations. The students also participated in two craft projects (making an apple napkin holder for Rosh Hashanah and a paper Sukkot), and sang a few traditional Jewish songs. 

For many years, Latham students have had opportunities to participate in religious services led by community leaders. Thank you to Rabbi Alperowitz and Devorah – our students and their families appreciate the time you spent sharing these special traditions, both old and new.
