The week of Parshas Noach at HALB Lev Chana is filled with the excitement of exploring rainbows, water experiments, and sink-and-float activities. The highlight, though, is the annual visit of Party Pets, with their amazing, exotic visitors. Andre Ricaud and his assistants teach the children about conservation, being sensitive to people and animals with disabilities, animal habitats and eating habits, and fun facts about the menagerie of mammals, birds, insects, and reptiles they were introduced to. Hands down, when asked who the stars of the day were, the children responded: either Jake the Snake and the newest member of Party Pets, Roo, the baby kangaroo, or Joey.

An awesome and joyful time was had by children and teachers alike.
