Hi Gimel families!

I hope all had a very meaningful High Holidays.  We dove right back into Hebrew school this week and had a fantastic class!  This week we learned about the holiday of Sukkot.   The class first discussed all of the items we may find in a sukkah and then used this information to discover what sukkot means, the symbols associated with this holiday and why we celebrate.  Then the discussion turned to what we do inside the sukkah and what items we would need and the rules on how a sukkah should be built.  Please ask them all the ways they learned!      

It was a really great part of our class to discuss the idea of a sukkah being a temporary home.  The class listed all of the temporary types of homes they could think of and we related those back to the sukkah we build and use today.

We imagined what it would be like to look up at the stars at night just as the Jewish people coming out of Egypt would have done.   We then had a chance to learn each plant that goes into making the lulav.  We also learned the prayer that is said before shaking the lulav and etrog together.  Please ask them to tell you about each and part of the lulav and how we hold the etrog.


I will not be in class next week but a wonderful substitute will be working with the Gimel class and will be learning about the holiday of Simchat Torah. 

Please save the date of October 23rd and get excited for the Gimel class family education program!



Moadim L'Simcha!

This past week we looked at the Israeli map and discussed The Old City in Jerusalem.  We also introduced/reviewed the letters Bet and Tav, and the vocabulary words associated with them.

Shabbat Shalom
