At Yeshiva Sha’arei Zion, the Kindergarten 1 students were super excited to be back at school after their Pesach vacation! The week was packed with excitement as the children baked challah with a key inside, prayed for klal Yisrael, and for Mashiach.

The children heard special stories about Rabbi Akiva and about the concepts of V’ahavta L’rei’acha Kamocha and S’firas HaOmer. The children learned that we count every day until Shavuos because the Torah is so sweet and precious! The class counted by placing one lollipop on the class chart each day, and they also counted on their own abacuses (bead charts) that the children cannot wait to take home to show their parents!
