Every year, HANC Plainview Elementary School celebrates The Shabbat Project as a grandparent and special-someone engagement program. Though Covid-19 prevented visitors to the campus this year, that did not stop us from celebrating remotely!

The theme of this year’s event was “A Taste of a HANC Plainview Shabbat.”On Wednesday night, there was a Grandparent – Parent – Child Shabbat Dessert Bake via Zoom and had over 65 participants making cinnamon-chocolate chip mandelbread together, led by the Director of Admissions and founder of the HANC Plainview Culinary Club, Francie Goldberg. Those who were fortunate to have grandparents in their homes baked together, while many students were surprised to see their grandparents logging on from all over the country.

The second half of the program continued on Friday morning, where over 125 participants gathered on Zoom to watch a video presentation of all the students in kindergarten through sixth grade sharing what their favorite part of the Shabbat meal is. Those presentations were placed between montages of the students cooking, cleaning, setting the table, and getting their homes ready for Shabbat. Set to a great soundtrack, the students really enjoyed watching themselves, and the grandparents and special someones got a “taste” of what our classrooms are looking like this year. The most significant part of the program was the end, when we spotlighted each grandparent or special someone to wish their grandchildren a Shabbat Shalom and say a special bracha or something personal. Students were so happy to see their grandparents and relatives they haven’t seen in months, and it was a truly beautiful and emotional morning. Each class was given a special Shabbat treat, black and white cookies from the local bakery Zuckerbakers. It was a small taste of HANC Plainview, but left a big impression. Each grandparent and special someone will be gifted “A Taste of HANC Plainview – The Cookbook” as a gift for attending the program.
