The day was highlighted by a lively luncheon, meaningful classroom visits and joyful Kabbalat Shabbat services. Generations Day, an annual Rashi School tradition, celebrates the powerful bond between the different generations.
Middle School ambassadors kicked off the event by greeting guests upon arrival. Head of school Adam W. Fischer delivered a warm welcome at the festive luncheon, followed by Jon Dixon, Philip Wiener and Peter Dixon, three of the event’s co-chairs. They spoke about the importance of academic excellence, social justice and Jewish values. After lunch, guests joined students in their classrooms to experience the learning process in action in subjects ranging from art to Jewish studies to science.
As on every Friday afternoon, students and their visitors enjoyed a slice of challah and attended Kabbalat Shabbat services, with a special dance performance by the school’s Israeli dance troop, Kesem Katan.
It was hard to say who enjoyed the day more, the kids or the grandparents!
