After learning the practical Jewish life skills of kashrus and brachos, classes daled and hey of the Friendship Circle Hebrew School went on an amazing field trip to Rockland Kosher supermarket, the largest kosher grocery store of its kind! They were given a VIP tour of all of the different departments where they got to experience, in a most hands on way, all that they had learned about before the trip.

The students explored how kosher meat and chicken was prepared, noticed the fins and scales in the fish department, saw dozens and dozens of challahs being braided and baked in the bakery and ended with a scavenger hunt to find kosher symbols on the packaged items in the aisles! It was truly a most memorable learning experience for all!
