Consecration Service & Sukkot Party
Sunday, September 27, 2015
Here are photos from our 4 & 5-year-old Chaverim students' consecration service and our annual Sukkot celebration.
Consecration marks the beginning of formal Jewish study. It is a lovely and meaningful ceremony for children and families alike. A large talit (prayer shawl) was held over the students while the rabbi offered encouragement and blessings. Each child received a miniature Torah, a consecration certificate and a discount voucher to attend a URJ Jewish summer camp.
We had nine consecrants: Ava Edelson, Carla Broda, Chandler Gilbert, Edward Yoo, Haylee Gilbert, Levi Postal, Max Wadkins, Molly Edelson and Stuart Greer.
