Jewish Academy of Orlando kindergartners pay visit to Savannah Court
This week, the Jewish Academy of Orlando kindergarten students visited Savannah Court in Maitland. Every year, the students perform songs for Chanukah at the senior living community.
"It is amazing to see the smiling faces," said teacher Andrea Gould. "Our kids' songs and dances seem to really affect the residents of the community-in a way that only kids and music can."
Head of School Alan Rusonik added, "Our students visit Savannah Court several times a year. It is part of us teaching mitzvot and giving back at the various holidays."
Parents support this as part of the school's mission. In fact, it is usually a full house with all of the parents who come and watch.
"Not only did it warm my heart to see these delicious children perform, it melted my heart watching them interact with their elders," said parent Amanda Jacobson. "I am happy that my daughter is learning how to give back to her community."
