Aleph – Section1 - Suzanne

Hello Aleph families!!

I hope you all had a meaningful Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

Today we began our discussion on Sukkot. The students learned all about the holiday including the following:

1- it is a temporary dwelling                                                                                                                                                                                                                                2- it is a Mitzvah to eat and sleep in the sukkah                                                                                                                                                                                             3- we typically hang fruits and vegetables in the sukkah to represent the harvest                                                                                                                               4- we shake the lulav and etrog all around us to show that God is all around us.

In Hebrew, we learned the letter resh and reviewed the letters shin, Tav, and bet.

We decorated flags to hang in the Temple Israel Sukkah and made edible sukkot using graham crackers!

We also read “The Best Sukkot Pumpkin Ever” by Laya Steinberg  What a fun filled day of learning!!

Have a great week!

Morah Suzanne, Parker and Max.


Aleph - Section 2 - Jennifer

Hi families,

This week we learned about Sukkot by reading the book, Night Lights by Barbara Diamond and watched a LEGO sukkot video  ( We talked about our experiences sleeping and/or eating in a temporary shelter be it a sukkah or a tent. In Hebrew, the children learned the letter ר (resh). The children are also getting very good at finding their name written in Hebrew as part of our morning activities. Last, we did a craft to hang in the sukkah. 

Please remember to send your child to TIRS with a kippah and water bottle each week. We also collect tzedakah, so please send in some coins each week if you are able. 

B’Shalom,  Morah Jen
