For Parshat Noach, animals visit HAFTR and HANC


Children and the Hebrew Academy of the Five Towns and Rockaway at at the Hebrew Academy of Nassau County celebrated Parsat Noach with animal visits.

Thanks to Bob and Jessie from the Petland Traveling Program, students encountered a hedgehog, a lizard, a snake, a macaw, a chinchilla, a ferret, a tortoise, a guinea pig, a sugar glider, and even a bearded dragon visited children at HAFTR.

Nursery students learned all about Noah and the ark that he was commanded to build. At the end of the week, to culminate all that the children learned about Noach, HAFTR’s Early Childhood made their very own rainbow.

Students at HANC’s Samuel & Elizabeth Bass Golding Early Childhood Center in West Hempstead, enjoyed a visit from some very cute and cuddly animals, feeding and petting ducks, goats, bunnies and more.

Morah Shani’s Nursery Aleph class was excited to make tevas complete with animals, Noah and his family — and even a place to store the garbage! The yeladim added in a rainbow (a keshet) across the top, painted with their own hand prints, and they learned the Hebrew names of all the colors in the rainbow.
