Today in grade seven, students learned about the centrality and importance of the Torah in Judaism. A student asked if G-d can predict our fate and why/if G-d
has allowed terrible things to occur in our world at this time. I introduced Rabbi Harold Kushner's response in his book, Why Bad Things Happen to Good People; that G-d created the world, but we as people are in charge of our own fate. Students learned about a way they can make a difference in their own lives at school and in their communities, by standing up for and being kind to others.
Students in the Hebrew section have mastered the Ayn Kamocha and were rewarded with a little free time for all their hard work.
Students in the music elective learned to sing Hevenu Shalom Aleichem.
Have a nice vacation!
