Sunday evening, Oct. 25, Hille
Day School presented its second
annual concert, starring Alan King
and Aliza Kashi.
Hal Gordon and his 18-piece
orchestra provided the background
music. Introductions were made by
the master of ceremonies, Jerry
Liebman, the father of one of our
graduates. Aliza Kashi sang an as-
sortment of songs for the first half
of the concert. She asked the
audience to join her in favorites
like "Jerusalem of Gold."
During the intermission, Hillel's
president, Mel Weiz, thanked every-
body for giving their time, effort
and money to help Hillel. Mean-
while, Hillel's ninth grade is con-
ducted - an extremely successful
candy sale for their senior class
trip. The would like to thank every-
one for their generosity.
Alan King followed with a
• hilarious hour-and-a-half of en-
tertainment. During one of bis
stories, Red Buttons made a
surprise appearance on stage to
the delight of the audience.
The program was a huge suc-
cess. So many people showed up,
that there weren't enough program
journals to go around.
The ushering was done by Hillel's
eighth and ninth graders and many
of our graduates.

(Allen, 12, is in the seventh
grade. His hobbies are wood carv-
ing and painting.)
In the coming weeks, Akiva
classes will be making art pro-
jects for Hanuka to be put on ex-
hibit for the public.
There will be assorted projects
on display. A mural will consist of
scenes of the market place where
Matisyahu stayed the Jew that was
going to sacrifice a pig to the idol.
And a battle scene where the Mac-
cabees wear the Mogen Dovid. And
the scene of the High Priest light-
ing the menora from the last jar
of oil. The end of the mural will
be a Jewish flag with a broken
chain around it, symbolizing our
freedom from Syrian rule.
Another class is painting pictures
of the Holy Temple and the scene
of Hanna and her seven sons. There
will also be metal and clay models
of other assorted symbols such as
the draidel, menora coins and the
jar of oil that was found.
