5th Grade News:
It was nice seeing so many of your kids yesterday in class, and we appriciate the participation. We started class reviewing the blessings before and after Torah reading. We have been working on them for a few weeks now. The kids practiced chanting in groups of 3 at a time.
Although distance learning poses a challenge, we are happy to see the kids are more familiar and comfortable with the blessings. We continued with a game of kahoot that was all about blessings and prayers we learned through out the year. Even though, this was our last Hebrew class of the year it was not goodbye just yet. Our syyium (ending) party will take place this
Friday, May 15th, 4:00pm.
This party is for all our wonderful 5th graders and their parents, Hebrew school and Shabbat chai! Hope to see you all there.
(P.S. If you haven’t already, please send your bingo pictures /videos until the end of the day today. Thank you to everyone that already sent, your pictures /videos are great!)
Stay safe and we will see you all on Friday,
Morah Michal and Morah Sandy https://us04web.zoom.us/j/4731915307?pwd=R0l5Q1A2THpDV3JVcjd0cnZjMkJ2Zz09

During our final Hebrew School session of the year, 6th and 7th graders participated in a mock-service, during which we explored the Shabbat morning prayers in their entirety. Each student helped lead at least one prayer, and we discussed the order and structure of the service.
For our last Shabbat Chai session on Friday, I’d like to invite 6th & 7th grade students and their families to explore the significance of becoming B’nai Mitzvah and the B’nai Mitzvah ceremony from a historical, contemporary, and personal perspective. If you have a 7th grader who has already become Bar/Bat Mitzvah, I hope you’ll attend to share your experience. If your family is looking forward to a B’nai Mitzvah ceremony in the coming year, please join us to hear from your classmates and share your thoughts. Here is the zoom link for our class:
I’d love to see all of you there!
