Today in 6th grade we continued looking at what it means to be a kehillah kedoshah, a holy community. Through this work we created our own classroom 10 commandments and discussed acts of loving kindness. Each week we will be focusing on one moral and ethical issue too so this week we examined what to do when we know someone else is breaking a rule from a Jewish perspective. The day finished with our first week of leveled Hebrew groups and then electives with the 7th grade class.
Today in 6th grade we began to learn all about each other through games like 2 Truths and A Lie and building table tents so that we could help to remember everyone’s names. We embraced these ideas through their Jewish roots in the larger idea of Kehillah Kedoshah, a holy community. We discussed that by learning together in this sacred space we are creating a holy community together. At the end of our day we combined with the 7th grade class to work on Hebrew with a fun game of Jeopardy.
