The Middle School Hebrew Classes worked to create unique and entertaining holiday videos. The students formed groups and were assigned a project to make a video that would teach our community about each of the holidays in a fun way. Ms. Liran Yaacobi, Drama Teacher, working side by side with the Hebrew Teachers, Ms. Bat-chen Levi, Ms. Nicole Chernick, and Ms. Merav Gilboa assisted the students. Bravo Everyone!
