First Graders Celebrate Receiving Their First Siddur

“This is the best day of my life,” whispered one of our students┬áto her first grade teacher, Marla Cavarretta, as she was presented her very first siddur. Marla shares, “First graders have spent weeks preparing to receive their siddurim. They have studied and discussed different tefillot throughout the year and were able to show off what they learned this week. When asked why they were ready for their siddurim, children responded by sharing that they could now read Hebrew and they know what the tefillot mean. Boy were they right! To celebrate this special occasion each class performed the famous Noah‘s Ark play. After the play, each child received their very first siddur, that they will be able to use for many years to come. The sense of pride from each family was undeniable. Mazal tov to the first grade class!” First Grade Teacher, Jesse Wolf adds, “The children said they were nervous but it didn’t show! The smiles on the children’s faces as they were called up to get their siddur could light up the room. What a magical day!”
