Celebrating Lag B’Omer
Students at Hillel Academy, Community Day School and Yeshiva Schools celebrated Lag B'Omer with acrobats, hair cuts and roasted marshmallows.
Elementary students had a blast participating in a special Jewish day school unity event to celebrate Lag B’Omer. Hillel Academy, Yeshiva Schools and Community Day School joined together for a fun-filled day.
The Chicago Boyz Acrobatic Team performed at a Lag B’Omer Jewish day school unity event at Community Day School together with students from Hillel Academy of Pittsburgh and Yeshiva Schools of Pittsburgh, dazzling the hundreds of children with acrobatic stunts and tricks inside twirling jump ropes, catapulting off mini trampolines and tumbling routines.
To celebrate Lag B’Omer, all three Hillel Academy toddler classes gathered outside for a bonfire. Using their imaginations and some art supplies, students collected sticks, lit the fire and roasted marshmallows for a special snack. The students enjoyed singing songs around the bonfire and sharing this special activity with friends in other classes.
