Chevi (#5) had her siddur party at school last night. (For those of you who think I've suddenly lapsed into gibberish, a siddur is a Hebrew prayerbook, and we make kind of a big production when our first-graders get theirs.)
The kiddos put on a little program, received a blessing from Rabbi Michel Twerski, shlita, then decorated their siddur-covers, and---of course!---ate. Their amazing morah (teacher) pulled together the whole production, and the kids were involved every step of the way. They made the pizzas and cakes, created the welcome signs, wrote invitations for their parents, and made their costumes. It was a pleasure to see how much pride they took in their work.
