Hi Parents,


The Aleph students have been working so hard and did such an amazing job at the class Shabbat so we’d like to reward them with a special day of activities this Sunday. That being said, Passover is coming up so our special day will incorporate learning about the holiday by showing the movie The Prince of Egypt while providing some nut free, kosher snacks (including some Passover favorites). Kids are also encouraged to wear pjs and bring in a stuffed animal. If you have any concerns about the movie or the snack, please reach out to us no later than noon on Friday.


Thank you for all your support!!

Hi families,


We did it! The class filled their pompom jar and earned a prize for this Sunday. Please see the email from Rabbi Kornsgold for details. Aside from celebrating their accomplishment, we discussed the different backgrounds Jewish people have and their exodus (like the Torah book that we’re currently reading from and the story of Passover…see what we did there) from various countries. We looked at a map and discussed Sephardic and Ashkenazi origins and the languages Ladino and Yiddish. We read the books Buen Shabbat, Shabbat Shalom and When Jessie Came Across the Sea and listened to a song in each language. Finally we started a family tree which the children brought home to finish with your help and discuss their personal/family journey. In Hebrew the kids learned the letter vav. They also had music today which is always a fan favorite!


Have a great week,

Morah Jen and Parker
