As winter break approaches, many students at the Weber School are excited to put school work aside and relax on vacation or in the comfort of their homes. Many students have a family tradition to go to the same vacation spot every winter break, where they relax from the tiring and stressful year.

After midterm exams, winter break starts and students begin their holiday and enjoy the winter spirit in their homes or vacation spots. Aliza Abusch Magder, a senior at the Weber School stated, “My family likes to live on the edge and we intend on going to places that are different almost every time. Winter Break makes me feel super relieved because I am not working and I’m doing things unrelated to school. This year for winter break, I am going to Colombia with my family. I’m going to my friend’s beach house in Cartagena, Bogota and Medellin to meet with the Jewish community.”

Some of the sophomores have amazing and fun plans for the relaxing break. Drew Talarico is going to Oranjestad, Aruba with his family. Talarico stated, “My family and I try to travel to Aruba at least once a year and Winter break makes me feel relaxed. I know I made it halfway through the [school] year, so I have the motivation that I can make it through the next half of the year. In Aruba, I go jet skiing with my family and I visit the beach and relax.” Sophomore Harris Jacobs is visiting Boca Raton, Florida. Jacobs states, “In Boca I am going to visit my grandparents. Winter break makes me feel relaxed and chilled because I get to rest. This is a traditional visit to Florida with my family. We go every year to visit my grandparents.”
