Tzahara’im Tovim (good afternoon)!

This week was an exciting one, as students geared up for Rosh Hashanah, and had a guest Hebrew teacher.

In Hebrew, students worked on greetings and numbers, increasing their understanding of a variety of “getting-to-know-you” questions, and their ability to answer them! They also worked on double-digit numbers, learning the Hebrew words for 10, 20, 30 etc., and how to combine them with other numbers to make the double-digit numbers.  Younger students also worked on their speed and accuracy in remembering and reciting numbers one-through-ten, increasing their comfort and ease in speaking Hebrew.

A note from Shani:

“This week, in our middle school classes, we learned about Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. We shared some of our goals and aspirations for the coming year, learned about various customs that surround the Shofar blowing ritual, and ate apples and honey! We explored the concept of Teshuvah, repentance, and talked briefly about what it feels like to give and receive forgiveness. As we move into the New Year, ask your children about what they’d like to accomplish this year, who they would like to be, and what they are looking forward to.

Shana Tovah!

Shabbat Shalom, and Shana Tova u’Metukah! A happy and sweet new year!
