Why, no! It’s just the sixth grade at Temple Israel! Like the Messiah, our sixth grade class is building models of the second temple in Jerusalem.
First, we dealt with the question of what life would be like if there was only one temple?
Then, we discussed actual second temple Judaism and its main form of religious practice: animal sacrifice!
Finally, we are using the architecture of the Temple to help our students further grasp the experience of individual Israelites (Jews) at the time.
Below are a few pictures from this week’s model building.
In addition, we started working on our Hebrew reading and I am already impressed with this energetic group!
See you on Sunday!
