The Bet students learned to read with the tsere and segol vowels, which make the “EH” sound, and practiced reading lines of Hebrew in small groups. In Judaic studies, we continued learning about the Ten Commandments. We explored the ninth commandment (you shall not make up stories about other people) by reading a story called “The Gossip” and the tenth commandment (you shall not envy what belongs to others) by reading a story called “The Peach, The Pitcher, and the Fur Coat”. By discussing the theme and characters in each story, the students saw how gossiping and being jealous of others hurts others. We also discussed how we can turn negative commandments, which focus on telling us what not to do, into positive commandments. Relating to the ninth commandment, the students were each secretly assigned a classmate to write a letter to with true compliments. The letters were sealed in envelopes and will be given out on the last day of religious school this year. Additionally, the students enjoyed singing Jewish songs with Mr. Alex and started learning to sing the prayer Ein Keloheinu.
