  • Carmel Academy Students Connect With Ancient Jewish Traditions

    Carmel Academy students got their hands dirty and their toes wet as they experienced the rituals surrounding the Hebrew month of Tishrei.
     
    In the days leading up to Rosh Hashanah, Carmel Academy’s sixth grade students spent the afternoon with Rabbi Schneur Wilhelm, who teaches about the crafts of Judaism. Rabbi Wilhelm, who is the Rabbi at the Chabad of Milford, led the sixth graders in a hands-on shofar workshop, as each student cleaned, sawed, sanded and created their very own shofar.

    “The Rosh Hashanah Amida is made up of three parts: Shofarot, Zichronot (remembrance), and Malkhuyot (kingship). At Carmel, each Middle School grade studies one of the sections and each has a corresponding experiential activity to help them grasp the meaning and relevancy of the ancient liturgy,” said Rabbi Jordan Soffer, Carmel Academy’s Rabbi-in-Residence.

    “Our sixth graders learned about the powerful sound of the shofar, the blast for ultimate redemption, and then built their own shofarot,” he said.
     
    “Our goal is to re-mystify the rituals by demystifying the rituals,” he said. “We hope to create a sense of awe and wonder that emerges from a familiarity. By making the shofar with their own two hands, our students gained a deep appreciation about how remarkable a shofar is, and, at the same time, how accessible it is,” Rabbi Soffer said.
