Bet The Bet students learned to read and write with the Hebrew letters Mem and Mem Sofit and continued reinforcing their reading skills with the letters and vowels they have already learned. We had our weekly Tefillah where students lead the class in the Friday night Kabbalat Shabbat prayers. In Judaic studies, we continued our unit about exploring the synagogue by learning how we dress to pray. Students learned how the kippah puts us in mindset to learn through a Talmudic tale, learned that the tallit has fringes on four corners that consist of 4 strings knotted in five places, and learned that tefillin, small boxes containing words from the Shema V’ahavta and other Torah passages, are worn on the arm and head since the Torah commands us to “bind them as a sign on your hand and let them serve as a symbol on your forehead”. A fifth-grade student joined our class and demonstrated how to put on tefiilin. Some of the students also put on tefillin, and we will have them in the class for other students to put on as well.
