KDVP moms and pupils share a shavuot ritual

  • YouthKDVPShavuot
King David Victory Park Pre-Primary hosted a very special “mommy and me” morning last week to make their own bikkurim baskets for Shavuot. These baskets were filled with kosher food and other items and then donated to Yad Aharon.

In ancient times the people would perform the mitzvah of bikkurim and bring their first and finest choice of fruits to the Holy Temple. They would do so by using trays of gold and silver or baskets made of grass and reeds. They would adorn these baskets with gifts for the rabbis.

In today’s times, Jews still carry on the spirit of the mitzvah of bikkurim. A primary theme or thought of this mitzvah is that of thankfulness, of gratitude and appreciating the good we are given.

The school teaches children to show appreciation for all the blessings, including the ability to do the mitzvah of tzedakah and give to those less fortunate than themselves. Just as Shavuot is a holiday of learning, at KDVP Pre-Primary there is a special effort made to teach the children all about Shavuot itself and in addition to this, special attention is paid to using practical day-to-day examples that the children can relate to.

 For the children spending quality time with their parents turning an ordinary box into a beautiful gift for someone less fortunate, is something that will stick with them for a long time.
