On Sunday morning, Aliza’s second grade class started the week by saying goodbye to Shabbat
The Kindergarten classes teamed up last Sunday to discover “Whats so Jewish about Ducks, Cats, Dogs and other Animals?” We learned that there are commandments in our Torah on how to take care of animals.
This past week the kids and I ventured into the Temple Isaiah Kitchen and created our OWN Israeli salad in recognition of the holiday Yom Ha’atzmaut.
On the Sunday and Tuesday before spring break, Aliza’s classes held beautiful classroom Seders.
The Sunday before Spring break, teacher Barb’s class was busy singing with Moses to make sure that the Pharaoh will “Let Our People Go.”
Sunday in Adra’s fifth grade class we celebrated Passover — chocolate style!
Passover is just around the corner. As we do each year, soon we will all be sitting around Seder tables, retelling the story of the Exodus. The students in Rina’s 6th grade class took the dictum “In every generation each person should feel as though he or she personally had gone forth from Egypt”
Rocki’s Kindergartners and Rina’s 6th Graders paired up once again for a special Buddy Day!
Over the past few weeks, Miriam’s fifth grade Hebrew enrichment class has been studying the prayers יוצר אור and מעריב ערבים, Yotzer Or and Ma’ariv Aravim. Here’s some of what they did.
The smartphone generation may not be so familiar with good ol’ fashioned postcards, but after their “virtual” trip to Jerusalem, Rina’s sixth graders took to postcard communication like fish to water (or… hummus to falafel?).
Rina’s 6th grade students explored the festival of Tu B’Shvat (Birthday of the Trees) by working in chevruta (studying pairs) on questions provided by their teacher.
When the Kindergarten students learned about the mitzvah of Bikur Cholim, visiting (or bringing comfort to ) someone who is sick, they were given the opportunity to make a special gift for our friend and staff member, Michelle Werier.
Our kindergartners celebrated Tu B’Shvat, the birthday of the trees, in the Temple’s Donna Gross Garden.
This week in Aliza’s second grade Tuesday class, we learned more about Israel, Israeli kids, and Israeli food. Yum!
