This year two students will graduate from the N.C. Hebrew Academy. We asked them to share with us their thoughts on leaving the school. What the Hebrew Academy Means to Me By Carrie Lambert The Academy is a very special school. From it I learn ed so much from the multipli cation tables to the meaning of helping, from long division to the history of Israel. Indeed, without it I would not be the same, and going to the Hebrew Academy was an ex perience I will never forget. The teachers at the Academy have always been friendly, warm and caring. They are the people who have contributed so much to my personality, to me. The Hebrew Academy has a very special atmosphere. It isn’t just that the school is smaU that makes it feel like one big family at the Academy, it’s everyone being Jewish. No one feels like an outsider because they’re Jewish, because we’re all the same. The Judaica classes are very special. We learn Jewish history, and we also learn about Tzedaka - charity, giving and caring. In my time at the Hebrew Academy I’veparticiapted in many Judaica plays, but to me the most special were the per formances for the residents of the Blumenthal Home for the Aged. Every year the school goes there at Purim and we perform a Purim-related play. There is a very special feeling that comes from helping and that’s something I’ve learned at the Hebrew Academy. The Academy made me a person, and going to the school was an enriching ex perience. It is with great regret that I end this happy stage in my life. My Experiences at the Hebrew Academy By David Brenner I have been in the Hebrew Academy for seven years and now I am graduating. It was a great experience. I Teamed a lot at the Academy. 1 par ticularly liked Judaica. I en joyed learning about Jewish history. When I read the stories, 1 feel like I am in them I edso enjoyed Language Arts. I liked to write stories so that I could put my creativity to work. Next year I will be going to Charlotte Latin School. I hope it wil be as good for me as the Academy, even though it doesn’t teach Jewish subjects. If you are a parent, I would advise you to send your children to the Hebrew Academy from Kindergarten to Sixth Grade. ***** An Interview with Han Weinglass Conducted by Lila Shapiro Currently one of the Hebrew Academy students, Ilan We inglass, has a colunm featured in the Yoimg Observer, a sec tion of the newspaper for kids. He writes answers to ques tions people have about com puters. The column has been a success, and I interviewed Il an to see how he feels about his article. Q: How did you feel when the Observer asked you to do the computer column? A: I felt very excited. 1 felt like I was doing something very important. Q: Why do you enjoy working with computers? A: I enjoy working with computers because I was rais ed with computers and it is a very big challenge to use them. Q: When did you start work ing with computers? A: I started working with computers in about the sum mer of 1982. Q: Is it a lot of work doing the column? A; Yes, it takes a lot of effort and concentration. Q: What are your plans for the future? A: I’m not sure yet. -J.C. Bradford & Co. RECOMMENDS Before Next April 15th Consider TXx-Free Bonds. Tax-Free municipaJ bonds are one of the best ways to a void the April 15Lh tax bite. And at J C.
