Rabbi Aaron in KS2 Assembly
To mark the period of the Jewish seasons of Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashanah, Rabbi Aaron from Northwood synagogue visited KS2 during a special assembly on Wednesday. Rabbi Aaron shared with the children how these two festivals mark a new year for Jewish people, making them reflect on things they have done wrong and how they could act more kindly in the future. Not only that, but Jewish people then tend to also talk to those people whom they have wronged, naming what they have repented of and saying “Sorry” to them. He also blew the special Jewish horn for us which is used to call Jewish people to prayer and reflection during this special season.
Our children left the assembly with the challenge of taking this attitude into their daily lives, saying sorry when need be and reflecting on how to act differently next time. After all, we do not need to wait for the start of a new year to make amends–tomorrow is always a new day, too!
A warm thank you to Rabbi Aaron for, once again, giving up his time to cycle across Watford to come and talk to us.
