What a great few weeks we have had at the Cohen School. Our learning has been focused on learning about the story of Passover, and practicing some customs that come along with the holiday. We learned some of the Four Questions, and we even experienced an actual Model Seder with our entire community. I hope students were prepared for their family sedes at home!
Also in exciting news, we have learned all of the Hebrew letters in the alphabet! Over the next few weeks, we will be reviewing, and we will end the year with a Hebrew assessment so you can see how much progress your child has made this year. To help them review, they can work on every lesson in their Tiyulim App.
Calling volunteers for a fun and rewarding tzedakah project. Our class has chosen to run a car wash at the synagogue to raise money for a local organization. The date will be June 1st, and I'm thinking we will run it from 11-12. Anyone interested in helping out? It will mean bringing buckets, soap, and sponges, and just hanging out with us as we wash cars! Thanks, in advance, for helpers.
We've had a great couple of weeks at the Cohen school, learning about the story and traditions of Passover, and continuing on learning the Hebrew alphabet.
We are almost all the way through the entire alphabet. Students learned the letter "tzadik" today, as in the word "matzah". They can practice what they learned by completing lesson 23 in the tiyulim app.
We've been becoming familiar with the four questions and learning about the seder plate, in preparation for your family seder and our model seder, next week, April 13th at 11:00. We hope you will all join us! Your children spent time and effort crafting their own beautiful seder plates that they will use at your Passover dinner table.
When learning about the Pesach story, students have been amazed and angered at how difficult life was for the slaves in Egypt. They were in disbelief that the Jews were treated so horribly, but also surprised at how God dealt with the Egyptians by bringing down the ten plagues.
