Jewish Life & Culture:

Hi all,

This past week we reflected on our personal connection and history to being Jewish in preparation for the Class Shabbat Celebration scheduled for Saturday, April 1. I wanted students to realize how they exhibit their Judaism and explain some of the rituals or artifacts their family engages in to further define their religion. Some students shared their Hebrew name and who they are named after, including great/grandparents, and what that legacy means to them. Others expressed the reason for their favorite holiday, such as "Pesach because matzah, horseradish, and charoset sandwich.” Overall, most students felt strongly connected to their Judaism and learning with friends at Temple Israel Religious School. Although my favorite reflection was most students listing having a connection to their attendance at Shabbat. As a reminder, for those students in attendance April 1 at Shabbat morning services, they will be leading some tefillot from the bimah and share a very brief connection to their Judaism.
