It was a delight to spend Sunday morning with your children. Alexandra, our teaching assistant, and I are looking forward to a wonderful year.
We started with a science experiment using two eggs - one raw and one hard boiled. That led into our story about a poor woman who had many hungry children to feed. She happened to find an egg. Considering herself a wise person, the woman devised a plan to use that egg to build a fortune. In the story, the woman planned extensively, but failed to take action. Reflecting upon the New Year, we thought about how we each want to grow, and what actions we can take.
Our class is learning about Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, the holidays that usher in the Jewish New Year. We looked at various New Year traditions, including dipping apples in honey. Your child now knows that TAPUACH is the Hebrew word for apple. Our Hebrew vocabulary will continue to expand.
I wish Shana Tova - a good year- to you and your family.
