Today was a wrap up day. We reviewed the fall holidays of Rosh Hashanah, the Ten Days after Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot. We linked the themes of these holidays, self improvement, appreciation for what one has, and community, with what we have learned from the stories of the prophets. We finished working on a project to show Dori our appreciation for all her years as Director. Because community building is so important, we read a packet of materials on friendship and conflict resolution. Finally, we ended our day with thinking of appreciation of our parents and reviewing our attitudes and the way we communicate with our parents. The students took home some materials they worked on and read during the year.
It has been a wonderful learning year. The class this year has been so involved and interested in all aspects of Judaism. It is also a very creative group in both their ideas and their communication. Next week, I will send them off with the knowledge that they are well connected to our Jewish values and to learning.
Have a great week.
