Hi gimel families!

It was so wonderful to see all of the kids again this past Sunday after our week off!!   We didn’t waste any time and jumped right back into the Book of Genesis.

This week we started class by reading and discussing Rebecca at the well and the importance of kindness.  We discussed how we show kindness to ourselves, friends, family, and to animals in our homes, neighborhood and community.  Rebecca shows herself to not only be kind to the people around her but kind to animals as well.  

We learned that Abraham wanted to make sure his son, Isaac, would be happy with a family of his own.   We had a lot of fun with this discussion and all of the questions and ideas your children had on how they would feel if they were in Isaac or Rebecca’s shoes.

We also started talking about Rebecca and Isaac’s children, Jacob and Esau.  The students loved discussing them and many shared if they had ever played tricks on anyone before and how we felt when tricks were played on us.   We shared times we may have regretted making impulsive decisions even though they seem right at the time.   Sometimes it is so hard to keep focus on the larger picture!!! Please ask your child what their favorite part of learning about Rebecca, Jacob and Esau was.

I can’t wait to see them again next week!
