Judaic Studies:

Our class learned the story of how Abram and Sarai left their home to follow God’s command to move to a new place. Their nephew, Lot came with them. Along the way their flocks grew too large to be encamped together and many arguments developed between Abram’s and Lot’s workers. Abram spoke with Lot and suggested they split, with Lot choosing first where he wanted to go. 

Our discussion centered on the Jewish value of Shalom Bayit, peace in the home. Some ideas expressed were that Abram was acting fairly in giving Lot the first choice of land since the split was Abram’s idea. Others felt Lot was being selfish in taking the best land for himself. We further talked about how we keep Shalom Bayit in our own homes and other places like school. It was decided that it isn’t always easy to keep peace, but it is worth it to try. 

HEBREW

Gimel – Shalom Gimel Parents,

This past Sunday we talked about the letter Pey, sister-letter Fey, and the Final Fey.  We introduced the Pey vocabulary words and played "Hangman".

Wishing all of you a happy Festival of Lights.
