It was a joyful morning with your amazing children. Everyone participated in our discussions about the coming Rosh Hashana. It is a wonderful time of year to reflect on the past year and to identify our hopes for the incoming one.
In Hebrew studies, we concentrated on TAV which makes a “T” sound. Key words for TAV are Torah and Tapuah (apple). Your children are putting letters together to form words like Shabbat – Shin, Bet, Tav. For homework, please have your child read chapter three on pages 9, 10 and 11 of our textbook.
We are learning about Bible stories that are part of the Hebrew Bible, but come from books other than the Torah (Five Books of Moses). Today we learned about how the walls of Jericho came tumbling down.
In the spirit of the New Year, I told a story called “Yettle’s Feathers”. Yettle, the main character, has a habit of gossiping about her neighbors. With the help of her Rabbi, Yettle learns how destructive her words can be. Your child made an excellent storytelling prop. I hope he or she will tell you the entire tale.
Due to holidays, we will not meet again until October 16th. I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you you a healthy and fulfilling New Year.
