SMARTee arrived in Atlanta, Georgia at the end of October. The students at Cumberland Academy of Georgia were very excited for his arrival and to celebrate Halloween with SMARTee. SMARTee began his visit spending time with Mrs. Gelbaum and her family. Mrs. Gelbaum is Jewish and spends every Friday night with her family at Shabbat dinner. SMARTee helped say the blessings over the candles and to cut the challah. He really enjoyed the traditional Sabbath meal with Mrs. Gelbaum’s family.
SMARTee’s adventures continued during the Halloween celebration with Mrs. Gelbaum’s students. He really enjoyed seeing the students dressed up in their costumes. They enjoyed going trick-or-treating at the senior retirement home next to Cumberland Academy of Georgia.
