In Grade 7

Our Trip to Benjamin’s Park Memorial Chapel

Our grade 7 students had a meaningful field trip to Benjamin’s Park Memorial Chapel. Mark Benjamin greeted us and walked us through the traditions and rituals surrounding death and mourning.  He taught us that the overriding principle concerning the body is respect and that when dealing with families we must try to comfort and support them.  He gave us great advice for things to say when vising a Shiva house, which I know our students will follow when they fulfill the mitzvah of comforting mourners as part of their B’nei Mitzvah requirements.  Next week we will continue our exploration of the mitzvot around life cycles
