We had a fabulous discussion about tzedakah this week. Students learned that there are different "levels of tzedakah". Each student was assigned a specific tzedakah scenario that they had to act out. Then, the class tried to identify which type of tzedakah the actors were depicting. While all types of giving are worthy, there are certain types that are "higher". For example, the highest form of tzedakah is teaching someone how do do something, and helping them become self-reliant. According to the talmud, these are the levels of giving with 1 being the "lowest" form and 8 being the "highest form". This is a great discussion for the dinner table:
We also began talking about Tu B'Shvat this week, but will continue even more learning next week at our special Tu B'Shvat seder! Please join us at 10:15 on Sunday.
In Hebrew, we learned the letter "tet". To practice more, please complete lesson 13 in the tiyulim app.
