Make the world a better place!

Written by

On 28 Nissan, 5770, The Hebrew Academy students learned about this special date. ‘28’ is the numerical value of the word ‘koach’ and Nissan is a month of especial ‘koach’ – strength and power. The 28th of Nissan is the ‘strength of the strength,’ so to speak, and therefore is a powerful day on which to make a resolution. On this day The Hebrew Academy students pledged to help bring Moshiach closer. They said:

To make this world a better place I will…

Pre Schoolers said:

…smile a lot today.

…put money in the Tzedaka box.

…plant flowers.

…help a person when they are sick.
