I see myself as the guardian of each student’s childhood, and am committed to filling their days with learning that is significant and meaningful. How do we do that at Mirowitz? Check back here weekly for a window into our school. I will post here on topics ranging academic excellence, meaningful Jewish learning and empowering children to make a difference.

Syd- Sunday night, we went to Mayumana drumming and learned body percussion, and bucket drumming. It was a lot of fun. When I answered one of their questions, I could tell they knew I  was a dancer. We all danced and practiced rhythms together, and then...

Israel and Jewish Identity

May 6, 2022

In Jewish tradition, we pause for a solemn moment before celebrating. We break a glass at a wedding, we remember being slaves in Egypt before entering Shabbat — and this week, we paused to remember the soldiers who have fallen on Yom HaZikaron as we prepared to joyfully...

Noah– We welcomed Yom HaAtzmaut on a boat on the Sea of Galilee. We had a dank rave. (Reb Scott translation: The students on our trip went out on a chartered boat together and danced to loud Israeli and American music. There were some colorful lights.)...
