September 11th Assembly

Thursday September 15th 2022

On Thursday, September 8, the Junior High School commemorated the 21st anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center. The students watched a meaningful video of the events that took place on that tragic day. The sense of hopelessness and turmoil that transpired was sensed by the students. The students heard from Rabbi Landsman, who spoke about recognizing the unique individuals in our lives who take care of us and deserve our appreciation and gratitude, such as bus drivers, security guards, custodians, police officers, and fire fighters. They also heard from Mr. Ehrenkranz (7th Grade Social Studies) who was in the Capitol building on that day, Ms. Simanowitz (Administrative Assistant) who spoke about the experience of her father, Michael Simanowitz, a first responder, and Mrs. Zakin (Resource Room), who was at the World Trade Center during the attack and witnessed the second plane crash. The program concluded with the recitation of Tehillim.
