Thank you to Abby Leichman for her wonderful article about our hands-on 4th grade kashrut unit at the religious school at Temple Emanuel of the Pascack Valley in Woodcliff Lake (“Kosher or not?” April 10). We are thrilled with the impact of our experiential approach to mitzvot and other subjects and we feel that Ms. Leichman really captured that in her article.
I want to add a “shout out” to Margie Shore, our fantastic school administrator, who handles the many detailed logistics for this unit – including doing a “pre-shopping” trip to our A&P in Woodcliff Lake to make sure they have all the ingredients with heksherim that we need! I would also like to thank Jordyn Freedman, our talented high school volunteer “resident photographer,” for the photos you published for the article. We are very fortunate to have her talent for our special events year-around.
We are so pleased to have been included in the Standard!
