From the beginning of the school year, 11th grade Honors Ivrit students practiced for the high school’s first-ever Hebrew musical, Kol Hakavod, an adaptation of a famous Israeli play and movie, Kazablan. Directed by Morah Aviva Moshe, the students challenged themselves by performing their roles in only Hebrew, and their hard work paid off in their final performance.
Cast members were both excited and relieved to perform after months of hard work.
“I’m so excited for everyone to see what we have planned in the show, and I had so much fun practicing over the months,” said Ariela Jaimovich (11th).
On Monday night, the juniors’ long-awaited show debuted for an audience of students, family, and friends.
“The students did a really amazing and wonderful job. It was my honor and privilege to be their teacher. I’m so proud of them,” said director and Ivrit teacher Morah Aviva. .
On Tuesday morning, the eleventh grade cast staged a second performance that students—both in the play and audience— truly enjoyed.
“I had a really good time practicing for the play and finally doing it. It was also so fun to have the whole high school get to watch us,” said Eli Menaged (11th), who played the main role, Kazablan (shared with Aryeh Izhak).
“The play was really fun to watch; the juniors performed amazingly,” said Saloman Ashkenazi Cohen (10th).
An inspiring and entertaining break from classes, the show concluded with Color War Breakout!
