CJDS Humash Ceremony A Family Affair

November 10, 2011

Formal Torah study begins in third grade at CJDS. While students study Torah stories in earlier grades, in the third grade they begin to study from the text itself. For this reason we customarily mark this special time with a ceremony that celebrates both Torah study and the passing on of Torah from one generation to the next. This year’s Humash Ceremony brought family members together as students embarked on their journeys through the Torah.
