part of a series of activities on the
school's theme for the month of
Tevet, which was hiddur pnei zaken

"It was lovely afternoon," said
Dina Shtull-Leber, head of
school. "It reminded us
how fortunate we are to
be located at the Ann
Arbor JCC where we have
intergenerational opportu-

School fulfills its mission
of fostering in our chil-
dren a love of community
and a sense of responsibil-

The seniors visited three
classes. The second-
graders presented a play

"I agree with what the children
believe," said Rose - Kielser.
In their play, the children shared

the concept of kedushah (holiness).
The drama was followed by a con-
versation with the seniors about
their understanding of this concept.
"I feel holiness when I hug my
grandchildren," said Sophie Mordis.
"I feel holiness when I go to sleep
at night and say some private

"language immersion."
In the kindergarten class, the chil-
dren shared with the seniors what
they had learned about the different
species of penguins (the school mas-
