Holidays

The school year at Rockwern holidaysrevolves around the Jewish calendar. All festivals and special periods of the year are noted and observed in the school setting. The entire building takes on the ambiance of the approaching holiday. All classes are involved in appropriate learning activities, observances and school assemblies. Classes and school activities are always scheduled with deference to Shabbat and Jewish holidays. School is closed, and breaks are scheduled to coincide with major Jewish holidays, and we also observe and celebrate national holidays.
