It was a joy to share Sunday morning with your wonderful children.
We learned more about Sukkot and the glorious holiday of Simchat Torah.
On Simchat Torah, we complete the reading of the Torah, and reroll the scroll in order to immediately start reading from the beginning. The children can relate to this, as they often want to hear a book read repeatedly. We love the Torah stories so much, that there is no time lost in beginning the entire scroll again.
In Bible studies, we heard about Naomi and Ruth. These are a mother and her daughter in law. Both have faced devastating losses, and yet they remain together and are rewarded for their goodness loyalty.
For homework, please have your child read about the letter Aleph in the textbook. The pages are pages 25 to 29 in the textbook. If questions come up during Hebrew study, you may want to go over previous topics in our book. The letter of this chapter is Aleph. Being a silent letter, aleph is spoken with the help of a vowel. This prompted us begin an in-depth study of the vowels.
Have a good weekend. Love, Mindy
