Jewish Life and Culture

Hi all,

Do you have a garden in your backyard? Do you grow fruit trees around your home? Have you set aside a portion of your produce for the Kohanim? With Tu B’shvat next weekend we discussed the significance of our modern Earth Day and the role Kohanim, Levites, and Israelites play in our prayer, rituals, and honors. Students developed a better understanding how the 12 tribes of Israel resulted in the formation of two primary regions, Israel and Judah; and how Judah is the ancestral root too much of our history. We also discussed who receives the first aliyah during Shabbat and Torah reading. Consider discussing if you know your own family history as Kohanim, Levite, or Israelite…it may determine your next aliyah order.

Thank you, AJ


Judaic Studies


We had another great week in Kitah Zayin!

This week we started a new unit in that students will look at different aspects of Judaism through their own lives. Students will have different prompts that they will write and draw that we will compare to Judaism. This week we started with students writing their names, heroes in their lives, villains, and their favorite song, lyrics, poem, etc. that guide them through life.
