Despite the stormy weather, the auditorium of HANC’s Samuel and Elizabeth Bass Golding Elementary School in West Hempstead was filled with great excitement in anticipation of the spectacular Chag HaSiddur. First Graders performed magnificently, dedicating their commitment to Hashem and tefillah. In addition to their individual speaking parts, they sang praises for Hashem, accompanied by the music of Rabbi Mordechai Shapiro.
At the conclusion of the play, each child was called up to receive their first siddur, presented by Rabbi Yaakov Sadigh, HANC principal, and their classroom teachers, Morah Shoshana, Morah Terry, Morah Chavy and Morah Rahel
This event was a source of nachat for many parents, grandparents, siblings, friends and teachers of these very special students. May the children’s tefillot continue to reach straight up to Hashem, and may they always bring nachat to all that they encounter.
Mazal tov to all of the HANC First Graders and to their extended families.
