As always, your children brought smiles to our faces at Sunday School.
Today we concentrated on the Hebrew vowels, which help us to sound out words and phrases. We particularly focused on the vowel that makes the "eh" sound. This vowel appears under a given letter as three dots. Imagine a triangle standing on it's point with a dot at each angle, and you've got the configuration. For homework, please review chapter 5 of our textbook with your child.
I told a story wtih props about a King who wishes to befriend a Rabbi. The King sends a precious ruby to the Rabbi, who in turn send the gift of a Mezuzzah to the King. Please ask your child to retell the story and you will find out how the Rabbi assessed the value of the presents. Each child made a Mezuzzah to place on a door in your home. Inside the Mezuzzah are the Shema and V'Ahavta prayers.
Have a wonderful week, and please stay tuned for more fun next Sunday.
