Today, on September 1, the school of “Or Avner” opened its doors for its students again. However, it was an unusual beginning of the school year, which for sure will stick in their memory for a long time! They did not conduct the ceremonial line in the school as usual but… do you suppose where? Not for you will guess!
Yes, yes, it was on the area of the Nizhny Novgorod circus! There were fine kids, well-dressed teachers, and excited parents! As usual, especial emotions there provoked our first-graders who there were holding by their hands our final-year students.
The kids were reciting poems, singing songs, speaking warm words to their teachers.
There was a guest in our festival too: It was the Rabbi of Nizhny Novgorod region of Shimon Bergman.
Traditional at the ceremonial line in honor of the Day of knowledge there sounded a “voice” of a shofar because the beginning of the school year coincides with the beginning of the month of Elul, which is the threshold of Rosh Hashanah.
Well, after that there rang the first bell in this school year!
