1st of Kislev, 5776
We have had a great two weeks in the classroom. We have been continuously working on our hebrew reading skills – practicing 20-30 minutes each class. Soon, I’ll be sending a hebrew packet home for students to continue their reading practice throughout the week. Just 5 minutes a day can make a difference!
Over the past two weeks, we have been talking about the theme of sacrifice as we begin to read bible stories from the Explorer’s Bible. The first story as part of the Genesis Narratives unit we will be in for the rest of the year is Cain and Abel. Ask your children who Cain & Abel are. We learned they are the sons of Adam & Eve, that Cain is a farmer, and Abel a shepard. We talked about the sacrifices they each brought to god and what happened after that – see what your child can remember from the story!
I have one important request for you all: we are in the process of collecting cell-phone numbers to reach parents using text alerts from the school when we need to communicate something to them quickly (i.e. canceling school Sunday morning). Please fill out this form.
Next, some announcements:
- This coming Sunday, November 15th the URJ Camps: Eisner, Crane Lake, Six Points Sci-Tech and Six Points Sports will be at Temple Israel for an informational assembly during class time from 10:15-10:45 with a special surprise courtesy of Sci-Tech – parents please attend! There will also be a table in the atrium from 10:45-1:15 for parents to get more information about camp.
- Shabbat Mispachah is next Friday, November 20. I would love to see you all there and have a fun shabbat evening with you and your family! Please RSVP using this link.
- Lastly, please like the Temple Israel of Boston Religious School page on Facebook!
Thanks for reading! Please be in touch with any comments, questions, or concerns and שבת שלום (Shabbat Shalom)!
