Today was Yom Kibbutz Galuyot. Eidah Aleph learned about the Aliyah from Baghdad, Operation Ezra and Nechemiah. They heard about how the Iraqi Jews were only able to take one suitcase and had to leave their jewelry behind when they made Aliyah. We read the book “Shoham’s Bangles” by Sarah Sassoon (https://lernerbooks.com/excerpts/27646#wowbook-excerpt/9) and heard about how her family hid their jewelry in their pitot, and brought them to Israel. The chanichim then made a Sabich sandwich, a traditional Iraqi food that was brought to Israel from Iraqi Olim.
