In the lead up to Shavuot Years 7 – 10 took part in a Yom Iyun in conjunction with JiEP and Jewish Studies. This was a lesson dedicated to learning about the subject of ‘damages’ and its applicability to modern day situations. The session ended with ice-cream treats for everyone in honour of Shavuot.
Special Shavuot displays went up in every zone around the school, ably decorated by students across the school. Our theme and focus for this year’s Shavuot displays was, “K’ish echad b’lev echad” which means, “Like one man, with one heart”. This is the message we wanted all students to feel throughout the school in the lead up to Shavuot, that we at JFS are a community with one heart!
