At a well-attended event on Tuesday, dads of Slater Torah Academy came to school for a special program with their children. The program, Donuts for Dad, which happens annually at Jewish Preschool of the Arts, is an important part of our school culture where the Torah Academy Family is one of our core values. The school community impacts not only students but staff members and parents as well. We believe that the partnership between parents and school is an integral part of the children's educational success.
After an adorable presentation by the students, where they sang some father's day songs, everyone was entertained by Daniel Yehudah, who is visiting New Orleans as part of Amiel Bakehillah. He performed and taught a few magic tricks using cards and string, interspersed with classic Hebrew songs which he sang and played on his guitar.
We can't forget the donuts. Everyone enjoyed chocolate donuts and refreshments after the performance was over. It was wonderful to see many dads stick around afterwards schmoozing with each other and watching their children play on the playground.
Thank you Morah Lina Warshawski for coordinating this wonderful program!
