Judaic Studies:

Today we moved on in our study of the Jewish life cycle by examining the point in a child’s life when their parents set them on their Jewish learning journey–Consecration. Students completed a chart that helped them remember when and how they learned important skills and knowledge–how to say please and thank you, how to tie their shoes, how to do their multiplication tables etc.  We then also looked at when they did their first Jewsih learning, when they learned the Shema, the Four Questions, Hatikvah, and when they began Hebrew School. We discovered that we usually experience Consecration around the same time we begin our formal secular education–in preschool or kindergarten.  Finally, the students experienced what it used to be like to begin learning the Hebrew alphabet–ask you student about the role of honey and sweetness in this exercise.


Students are progressing at their own pace through their binders. Some students are learning vocabulary related to the Friday night Kiddush, some are learning vocabulary related to blessings over food and some are working on vocabulary and concepts connected to the blessings before and after having an Aliyah to the Torah. Students are working diligently and making progress.
