The Bet students learned to read with the Hebrew letter Vav. They practiced reading aloud as a class and then practiced writing Hebrew words with Vav’s. They learned that a Vav with the sh’vah vowel is how we say “and” in Hebrew. In Judaic studies, we learned how there are Jews all around the world and that Jewish people living outside of Israel (our homeland) are said to live in the Diaspora.  We located countries on the globe and then saw pictures of Jewish people and synagogues in different parts of the world. We discussed that Jewish people may look different and speak different languages, but we all share common customs such as lighting the menorah, wearing a tallit, and having a Magen David on the outside of our synagogues. We read excerpts from a book called Shabbat Around the World where we heard short stories about Jewish children celebrating Shabbat in Australia, Southern France, and Thailand. I will be absent next week to attend a family Bar Mitzvah, so I look forward to seeing the students on May 7th.
