We had a super fun day today at the Cohen School. The Jewish month of Adar has commenced. In this month, not only are we happy when we celebrate Purim, but we are commanded to be joyous throughout the whole month. So, we began by building our ruach with a pajama day. We also played a few extra silly games to help us get in the spirit.
Also, we completed our Jewish name plates. We learned about what our Hebrew name means and about who were were named after. Stop by the class next week to see them!
Finally, we read the book called "When Jessie Came Across the Sea" by Amy Hest, and began to have a discussion about Jewish history and immigration. This book is about one girl's story of coming to America from a poor country. It discusses the challenged s and emotions associated wiht leaving one's country to come to an unfamiliar one.Your children were assigned to learn about their family stories. This is a fabulous jumping off point for a discussion on Jewish history.
