To learn about and fulfill the special mitzvah of mesameach chattan v’kallah, bringing joy to the bride and groom, Atlanta Jewish Academy first-graders recently planned and conducted a beautiful party for Jennifer Rosenblum, one of their teachers, and her new husband, Hank Rosenblum.
With the help and guidance of two of their other teachers, Morah Yael Perez and Morah Dafna Kol, the children learned about and carried out all the different components surrounding the mitzvah. The students wore special clothes and wrote cards and notes to the bride and groom. They baked challah and special desserts and made a delicious meal for the newlyweds.
The first-graders experienced this beautiful mitzvah with all their senses and all their hearts.
