Dear DKJA Community,
During the month of February, students in all grade levels will be commemorating Black History Month through a variety of lessons, activities, and discussions. As part of DKJA’s commitment to Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), it is essential that our children continuously learn about the history of our country, in an effort to remove racial barriers and work towards unifying our diverse community. In addition, the month of February has also been designated as Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month, with the goal of creating an atmosphere of inclusion for all and welcoming the disabled into our community. As we continue to emphasize a holistic educational experience rooted in Jewish values, the inclusion of activities and discussions related to these topics helps our children fulfill the mitzvah of lifelong learning.
