The wonder of the Outdoors

heritage 2LONGMEADOW – Heritage Academy broke down the classroom walls as they embarked on a new experiential learning adventure. This month students begin the reading of the Torah with Creation. The text came to life as staff and students took off on an adventure to the Summit House at Mount Holyoke to celebrate the wonders of the world around us. As students hiked up the trails, they explored the beauty of G­-d’s creations from the camouflage of the stick bug to the majesty of the scarlet cardinal. After enjoying lunch with a view of the valley, groups each took on the challenge of retelling the day-by-day account of Bereshit (Genesis) through song, art, drama, and dance. The celebration culminated with a joyful Kabbalat Shabbat.
