We had a great time in Sunday School discussing the New Year and all that we hope to do to make it a good one. Our themes included forgiveness and friendship.
I told a story entitled "The Yom Kippur Lesson" It's about two neighbors, one wealthy in material things, and the other with only one prized possession - a tree. In jealousy the wealthy neighbor cuts down the tree. Please ask your child to tell you the story. It's a beautiful tale about saying "I'm Sorry."
Each child has now received our textbook The Alef Bet Quest. We have covered pages 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. This past Sunday we explored the two silent letters: Aleph and Ayin. The pronunciation of these letters is determined by their accompanying vowels. For homework, please go over lessons One and Two with your child. Thank you!
May your joys be many in this New Year. Love, Mindy
