Happy Winter Days !
Half a school year went by and we have comfortably settled into our study routine. Our Judaic studies continue to be a source of fun and laughter thanks to our "Kahooting" along with the power point presentations about Jewish History and Israeli's modern history. Please keep sending them with their phones or tablets on Wednesdays. However, it would me much appreciated if you explain to your children the importance of not using these same phones on Shabbat.
In Hebrew we are still working in 5/6 graders groups. Our beginner class is learning to read simple words from the letters they have learned so far. Indeed,there is still a long way to go but given your encouragement and gentle urging, I am sure we will accomplish more by the end of the year. It is imperative that they practice their Hebrew reading at home so as not to forget and allow for a higher leaning speed in class. Please remind the children to practice their reading with "Mr. Lemonhead" from the Behrman house website at behrmanhouse.com. http://www.behrmanhouse.com/click-and-read-free
During our Shabbat sessions we begun to put a special emphasis on prayer fluency so as to ease some of the pressure of Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparedness. In addition, we engage in a special Shabbat functions such as the fabulous Grandparents and Special Friends Shabbat we enjoyed this past shabbat. We were excited to see and meet so many grandparents and family members of many students. It was a truly emotionally and spiritually uplifting experience.

Feeding the hungry is a great Mitzvah they should learn and follow from a young age.
