Visit to Mikvah Israel

The 8th graders were treated to a visit of the historic Mikvah lsrael
synagogue. The Rabbi, Rabbi Albert Gabbai, told the students about
unique  stories and history of this congregation which dates back to
1740! The students saw many of the unique and priceless items in the
Beit Knesset, including a Sefer Torah donated by Haym Solomon, a
contemporaryof George Washington,and known as the “financial hero of
the revolutionary war”. Most significantly, the students gained more
of an appreciation for Tefilah and the important role a Shul plays in
a community.
