For the past two weeks our Sunday School class has been focusing on Chapter 7 in our textbook, and on review of the Hebrew letters and vowels we've learned. The keyword for Chapter 7 is Tzedaka and it's first letter is Tzadee. Tzedaka is defined in our book as Justice, but has also been defined as Charity, Helping Those in Need, and Goodness. You may have a Tzedaka box in your home. Some families put coins in this box prior to Shabbat to help those less fortunate. Your children have asked to make their own Tzedaka box - and the materials are on order.
There is amazing progress among our eager students in mastering Hebrew. This would be a great time to review the first seven chapters of our textbook with your child.
On behalf of myself, our amazing teaching assistant Alex, and all of us at SSJS, I'd like to wish you a joyous Thanksgiving. We extend thanks to you for sharing the journey of Jewish learning with us. We look forward to beginning our Hanukkah celebrations when Sunday school resumes.
