Hello families! This Sunday, the students in my Hebrew group continued to review the letters, vowels, and practice the Ein Keloheinu אֱין כֱּאלֹהֱינוּ. A video/ audio recording of this prayer can be listened to through this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-V0LVzea11E If your student would like to practice the Hebrew aleph-bet, here is the video link we listen to every week at the start of the Hebrew block: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UiCzoTs1AdE
During snack, we reviewed the Women of the Wall campaign and the students who were here last week informed their classmates on the mission and the legal struggle that is happening in Israel today. Afterwards, we continued our study of Jerusalem and focused on places in the New City. As a class we read brief snippets about places like Montefiore’s Windmill, the Israel Museum, the Shrine of the Book, Tisch Gardens Biblical Zoo, Yad Vashem, Mount Herztel, and Gan Hapa’amon. We then did a project where each student got to choose one of these places to research and they created a postcard with a picture and information. It was great to see every student invested in their research and many got creative and wrote some really interesting pieces of information about the sites and activities at these places. Thank you for allowing your student to come to school with an iPad or Kindle, these resources really helped the students access content quickly when they worked on their mini postcard project.
We do not have Sunday school on November 12 due to Veteran’s Day. So I will see you on Sunday, November 19th. Also, please remember to bring tzedakah if you can. B’vakasha!
