While the Muslim students were on vacation for Eid al-Adha, it is a tradition of Neve Shalom-Wahat al-Salam’s elementary school that its pupils have a day consecrated to celebrating Winter. On this occasion the whole school gathered at 12pm on November 8, and ate some soup. There were a few batches of lentil soup and a few batches of vegetable soup. The 6th graders were responsible for making the delicious soups, and all grades and teachers took full advantage of it. Expected was a rainy day, but it turned out to be a very sunny day, and pretty warm too. So the Winter Day felt like summer!
Ira, 1st grade teacher, accompanied by Guy, Drama teacher, during the last hour read to the 1st graders. They read the famous Israeli ancient story of “Honi Ha-Meagel” about the one year long lack of rain and a man who walked in a circle in order for it to rain.
November is also "Democracy Month" throughout the national school system in Israel, in conjunction with the anniversary of the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. At the school, the teachers also incorporate the commemation of the Deir Yassin massacre.
