Judaic Studies -

In honor of Simchat Torah we reviewed our study from last year of the structure of Torah–5 Books, each with chapters and verses.  Students worked to locate specific chapters and verses when given notation (i.e. Shemot 3:2-5).  If you have a Chumash or other version of the Torah readings at home practice finding specific portions–you can even find an entire parashah. Can they find your parasha from your Bar/Bat Mitzvah?  We then turned to Bereshit and the students found the record of the first babies being born–Cain, Abel and Seth.  A great discussion then occurred.  Since there were no men or women before Adam and Eve, did their creation count as a birth?  Discuss this in your family–is there a consensus?  The Hey students also have homework for next week–they are to find out how you, as their parents, decided on their English and Hebrew names. Please tell or review with them any details or stories you have about thee choices.

 

Hebrew - Students continued working in their Mitkadem binders. They are making  great progress. Students are working on various tefillot, including Friday night Kiddush, The Amidah as well as learning the blessings over different foods.
