Purim, Hamantashen, and the Whole Megillah
This past Sunday we had a lot of fun with our second graders and their families during Family Day. Together, we learned all about the holiday of Purim.
Here is what teacher Aliza wrote about the day:
Parents enjoyed baking hamentaschen with their children. We also worked as families to put together mishloach manot. Mishloach Manot (literally “the sending of portions”) are small gifts of food or drink that we send on Purim. Giving mishloach manot is a big mitzvah. We show that we are thankful for the goodness in our lives by giving gifts of food not only to friends and family but also to those in need.
While our parents were learning about the Purim story with Rabbi Nickerson,we created our own megillot in the classroom. We also learned about the story of Queen Esther’s heroism.
We were very happy to see so many families here on Sunday. Check out how much fun we had together.
