  This week we discussed the concept of the Counting of the Omer and what it represents to us in our lives.  We played a review game which got the ...

Please read to end for question of week!

This week we focused on the approaching holiday of Purim.  The students had the opportunity to see a megillah up close which resulted in some really interesting questions from the children. When we give opportunities for genuine Jewish exploration, a deeper and more meaningful ...

 
 

Strings, Ice and Sink Holes, We Cover it All!

Today we discussed the ambitious Korach, who attempted to incite a rebellion against Moshe.  We learned how Hashem clearly demonstrated how it was Moshe whom He chose to be the leader of the Jewish People.

Raise Your Flag

Today we had a meaningful lesson in which we explored the camping of the Jewish People in the desert.  There were close to 1,000,000 men, women and children who traveled as nomads for 40 years in the desert.  In order to maintain order, the tribes used flags to keep stragglers within ...

Right Now Would be a Good Time to Read this To the End!

This week we focused on the priestly blessing as written about in the
Book of Bamidbar (Numbers).  This is the Book of the Torah
that we are focusing on this year in Jewish History.  To gain a
better understanding of what the Birchat Kohanim,
the Priestly Blessing, is, we had a ...
