Today, to signal that the High Holidays have come to an end for this New Year , one of our students blew the shofar in class. We reviewed the holidays we have just celebrated, and did a worksheet for Simchat Torah which dealt with the 5 books of the Torah.
We also talked about the fact that the Torah is read every year in synagogue. The class continued on with the unfolding of Jewish History through the Middle Ages and discussed the Golden Age of the Jews in Spain. We then had a review test on what has been learned thus far, and added another essay to our growing journals. We did Hebrew, sang songs and brachot, and in general had an exciting morning of learning.
