Sock Hop Fundraiser at Adat Chaverim!!

This month in 5th Grade Judaica!

We have had a busy month of wedding prep and of studying Jewish Ethics. The students have had some very spirited and insightful discussions around many of the ethics that we explored. They are also quite the impressive wedding planners!

This Month in 5th Grade Hebrew!

This month, we are continuing to work hard on improving reading and comprehension skills. We are also working on learning more prayers.

We will finish the month with Birkat Shalom, which is the final blessing of the Amidah and is a prayer for peace. The prayer asks G_d for peace in the world forever.

Jewish tradition teaches that nothing is more important that Shalom - Peace. That is why we greet each other and say goodbye with the wish of Shalom.

The evening service begins with Shalom Rav, which means "great peace". In the morning, it begins with the words "Sim Shalom," which means "grant peace,

We finish with Oseh Shalom. That is said immediately after the Amidah and asks G_d to make peace - Shalom - in our lives and in the entire world.



5th grade begins the day with bagels! Click here to sign up or to check your bagel bringing date.

Thank you to EVERYONE for making this possible!
