Intergenerational Memories that Last a Lifetime
In May, Lubavitcher Yeshiva Academy (LYA) in Longmeadow invited grandparents to the school to spend time in the classroom with their grandchildren. Close to 50 grandparents were on hand to view and participate in science experiments, robotics, a writer’s workshops, peer reading, Chumash games and mapping.
Later grandparents and guests were welcomed by Rabbi Noach Kosofsky, Head of School and watched a video in which every student expressed why their grandparents are special. Then, students and guests added their handprints to create special welcome banners that will be displayed at LYA.
For Lillian Edelman, wife of Rabbi Dovid Edelman, z”l – LYA’s beloved longtime Dean, the day had special meaning as she spent time with her great-grandson and third-generation LYA student, Mendel Kosofsky.
“The day was beautiful. It was evident that all the grandparents were very happy to see their grandchildren thriving at LYA,” remarked Lillian Edelman.
