k May 22, 1998 HAT Continues to Celebrate Israel at 50 Grandparents Day, 5758 "This is what Hebrew Acade- my is all about - family," said Hebrew Academy president Bob Josenberg in his closing remarks at this year's Grandparent's Day celebration. Students at HAT welcomed approximately 175 guests to the school on Friday, May 8, to con- tinue their celebration of Israel at 50. Dr. Laurence Kutler opened the program with remarks about that which links one generation to the next generation. The HAT choir led the group in singing of "Star Spangled Banner" and "Hatikvah." The motzi was led by Tanya and Maurice Miller and Irene and Willie Mazel, past-presidents of the school, with grandchildern currently attending HAT. Following a breakfast, the stu- dents of the school provided entertainment for their guests. The program began ,ith an excerpt from the Middle School's "Great Ideas" program, "A Trip to Israel." This included clever dialogue, a computer gen- erated slide show of the sites of Israel, and a familiar song with original lyrics. The program continued with first grade Suzuki violinists play- ing the chorus to "Zum Gali Gali," accompanied by Max Chucker and Keri and David Horwitz who played the melody line. The students then provided a "Salute to Israel in Song." Under the direction of their Juda- ic Studies teachers, each class sang a song relating to Israel and left the stage to surround the room. As choir director Shari Spark raised her hands, the choir began with the Debbie Freidman version of "Oseh Shalom." The rest of the student body joined in as they continued with the tra- dional melody, and 238 voices filled the room and wished for peace. Before visiting the class- rooms, the grandchildren of past- presidents led the group in Birkat Hamazon: Staci Eichelbaum, Jana and Carly Katz, Shayna and Suzanne Mazel, and Elka and Maurice Mednick. Grandparents were treated with gifts prepared by the students in their General Studies classrooms. Students in grades 1-8 made the cooperative centerpieces that graced the tables. Jodi Klebanoff and Shel- ley Slone were co-chairs for the event. Israeli rock star Noa visits HAT In a rare personal appearance, Noa, an Israeli rock star, visited HAT on Tuesday, May 5. Noa, who performed Israeli, Yemenite and rock songs the evening before as part of the Virginia Waterfront Arts Festival, came to HAT in order to say "shalom" to her Hebrew Academy fans. While at the Academy she was touched by the tefillah in Mrs. Sheila Panitz's fourth grade class and the exuberant faces in Mrs. Caren Kutler's kinder- garten. She discussed her own experiences growing up in Riverdale, NY, in a similar day school. Noa's love for the Academy's children was evident and her warm shalom was as infectious as it was endearing. The children enjoyed talking and meeting with the Israeli singing sensation. Noa Dr. Laurence Kutler with Noa at the Hebrew Academy left the school with the hope that all of Tidewater's Jewish chil- dren could avail themselves of such a fine education.
