After weeks of dedicated study with our Middle Schoolers of this exact piyyut and the actions championed by it – meaningful prayer, charitable giving, and personal reflection and repentance – we geared up to dedicate some time (Tuesday Morning October 4th, to be exact, from 8:45 am onwards) to teaching and learning about these concepts at our Teshuva Carnival. Students of all lower grades attended. Each carnival goer was gifted a carabiner that they carried with them to earn rings at different carnival booths built by our middle schoolers, teaching these topics. All students wore white and came ready to engage in a series of games and activities that hopefully brought them one step closer to who they wished to be, in 5783. The room was filled with music, fun, learning, and a whole lot of Yavneh magic.
