We are now celebrating the beautiful harvest festival of Sukkot. On Sukkot, some families build temporary huts outside their homes. A Sukkah is a perfect perfect place for eating meals and welcoming guests to enjoy the Autumn. Each child created a model Sukkah, and decorated it. To learn about Sukkot, we enjoyed a book entitled "Night Lights" about a sister and brother who slept outside in their Sukkah like our ancestors did.
We studied lesson 3 in our textbooks, on pages 13 through 16. This chapter focuses on the Hebrew letters Lamed and Dalet. Key words in the lesson are Shalom (hello, goodbye and peace) and Adom (the color red). Please review lesson 3 with your child.
Please send the following with your child each week: 1) the bookbag we created, 2) our textbook (Alef Bet Quest), a snack and a Tzedaka contribution. Many thanks!
Our next meeting will be on October 15, and we will enjoy additional Sukkot festivities at that time.
Have a great two weeks.
