As part of All-School Meeting on Friday, April 9, four Upper School students presented “Jewish Narratives: Voices from the MBS Community” in which they shared stories of their family's Holocaust experiences and discussed their personal connections with the cultural and religious aspects of Judaism.
Maddie Drucker ’23 began the presentation by sharing the emotional story of her grandfather’s experience during the Holocaust. Jacob Shur ’22 spoke about the cultural and religious significance of Israel and Jerusalem, while Robyn Liss ’22 discussed the importance of Jewish food traditions such as gefilte fish in her family life. Sarah Karbachinskiy ’22 dispelled myths about Israel and talked about what she learned during her numerous travels to the country.
