Around 300 parents and pupils participated at a Nancy Reuben Primary School Shabbaton held at the school and at the adjoining Od Yosef Chai Simcha Hall. The Chief Rabbi Efraim Mirvis joined parents and children on Shabbat afternoon at which the Chief Rabbi spoke on the importance of the family and education and he then followed this with short question and answer session. Fifteen madrichim from Hasmonean High School 6th Form looked after the children during the Chief Rabbi’s talk to parents. After Maariv, the Chief Rabbi led a beautiful sing-a-long Havdalla during which the children sang with him. The Chief Rabbi congratulated the school on its recent successful Ofsted inspection and wished everyone involved with the school continued hatzlocho. Paying tribute to the PTA Shabbaton Committee, Head Teacher Anthony Wolfson said The Chief Rabbi’s participation in our NRPS Shabbaton added a very special dimension to what was a truly inspirational Shabbaton, a first for the school.
