We extended out study of Jerusalem today with a video showcasing three families living in the Old City–1 Jewish, 1 Muslim, and 1 Christian.  Ask your child about the one thing that brings all three of these groups together (One God–monotheistic–and all come from Abraham) and how each family feels about their religion and place in Jerusalem (all three religions had important events happen in the city). We also began to explore the concept of midrash–ask your child about the example of midrash we read in class (one version of how Abram came to smash the idols in his father’s shop). We will continue next week with both Jerusalem and midrash as the students will work to write midrash about how Jerusalem came to have its various names (City of David, Lion of God, Oasis of Justice, etc.)
