Judaic Studies:

Hi Kitah Gimel families,

This past Sunday we continued our journey through the Book of Genesis and discussed Jacob and Esau.  Our focus was learn about and follow the story of Jacob when he marries both Leah and Rachel.  The students loved discussing these stories since the focus was on tricks.   We discussed if we had ever played tricks on anyone before and how we felt when tricks were played on us.   We made connections with Jacob when he tricked his father and then again when Jacob was tricked by Laban.  I cannot even express how excited I am when the students lead our conversations and how deep they go.  Please ask your child to tell you about these stories and the connections they made.

Next week we will continue talking about Jacob and how he made his way home to reconcile with his brother Esau.  I cannot wait to hear their thoughts!

Please feel free to reach out to me at any time.   



Shalom Parents,

This past week we discussed specific prefixes and suffixes, and how when we add them + vowels to the shoresh (root) we can create words. We also identified some Shorashim and their meaning.
