Thankfulness Trees Grow at LYA

The children in the early childhood program at Lubavitcher Yeshiva Academy (LYA) in Longmeadow created thankfulness trees to share the things they are thankful for with their parents – including, in the childrens’ own words: “Singing a song,” “My family reads me books,” and “Lemonade.”

The children presented their thankfulness trees to their parents during a special Thanksgiving program. Families made handprints to decorate a large turkey and used vegetables to create edible turkeys for a turkey-making contest. The program was sponsored through a grant from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation. Yehuda Helfen is shown here presenting his mother Tamar with his Thankfulness Tree.
