9th Annual Multilingual Poetry Night - Erev Shira: A Beautiful, Special Evening and a Wonderful Success!

On Tuesday evening, Hebrew Academy (RASG) partnered with Books and Books, in Bal Harbour, for our Ninth Annual Poetry Night. Mazal Tov to our Hebrew Academy Family of parents, students, teachers, staff and administration who attended this outstanding event. They truly showed their support for our talented and dedicated Elementary School Children's Choir and the Middle School and High School Poets. Over 60 parents, students, teachers, staff and administration attended our Poetry Night Event. This was a truly beautiful and memorable evening and a treat for all in attendance.

Our wonderful and talented Hebrew Academy Elementary School Children's Choir, beautifully directed by our wonderful Choir Director, Mr. Shlomo Krivinsky, entertained everyone with their moving performance of Hebrew songs. Next, our Middle and High School students eloquently read their amazing, creative poems that they had written in Hebrew, English and Portuguese. Their original poems were selected to be read at the Poetry NightEvent by the teachers in our school’s Hebrew and Foreign Language Department and Middle and High School English Departments.

The original poems moved everyone in attendance, as many of the students read poems expressing their feelings remembering student Sammy Farkas z”l
