Highlights from Sunday, January 10th

  • Gan Yeladim talked about Tu B'Shevat (the birthday of the trees!) We talked about what trees do to help us and what we can do to help the trees. We planted parsley seeds!
  • Kitah Aleph talked about the difference between tzedakah, mitzvah, and g'milut chasadim. We danced around the room to Rick Recht's song: That's what you do when you're a Jew! and then decorated our bulletin board with mitzvot!
  • Kitah Bet learned that the Torah tells us we were made in God's image. We talked about prayers of thanks to God. We made bird feeders from recycled containers and hung them on trees outside for Tu B'Shevat!
  • Tracy's Kitah Gimel reviewed and learned about rules and laws of the Torah and the importance of passing them on. The kids made bedside scrolls to include the teaching that they felt was most important and why (many of them chose more than one!)
  • Kesher worked on their MLK Shabbat service, which included artwork and poetry on the theme of social justice that they composed at a workshop with local poet and community activist, Tamiko Ambrose.

Shabbat Shalom! See you this Sunday, January 31st!
