Message from Rabbi Krauss, Academy Principal
Every year for the past few years SAR has introduced a theme of the year. Our students have learned about "good choices", "arvut" and "mi dor l’dor". This year’s theme is "kedusha" and we will engage in a school wide discussion of what it means to be kadosh or holy.
Over the course of the year--in all that we do--we will ask ourselves; "What is the importance of being kadosh?" and "How does one achieve kedusha?" We will discuss the differences between an "Am" kadosh and an "Ish" kadosh, talk about places that are holy and times that are holy.
We will also be examining actions that epitomize kedusha. Throughout the year we will be showing the students the ways in which kedusha can happen daily. We will ask to think about how they can bring kedusha to their school, their families, to
The common message to all grades is that kedusha is elevating something regular and making it holy. Each grade will be examining the theme of kedusha in their classrooms, on the playground, and with their friends and teachers.
We look forward to a year of kedusha with you and your children.
Rabbi Binyamin Krauss
