Matan recently came to our Sunday school to introduce himself to the students and visit with some classes. Fortunately for us, he came to our classroom! After Matan introduced himself to the school during morning assembly, he showed us short video about Israel. The plot to this video was not a person walking their camel through a desert, but instead it portrayed a realistic feel of the culture and atmosphere in Israel.
When Matan came to our classroom, he immediately connected with the children and they could not stop asking him questions! The students were particularly fascinated when comparing and contrasting life in Israel (the land of the jews) and the life they live here. After some ice breakers and a brief discussion about Israel, Matan taught us a fun Israeli game and the kids loved it!
It is important for the students to find pride in being Jewish and Israel. Meeting with Matan was a preamble to more Israel fun in the future!
