5th Grade (Hey) Class Update


Hey 1 & 2 Mary’s Letter

Dear Kitah Hey 1 and 2 (5th grade) Families,


I hope that all of you are staying warm and healthy.


The excitement for our Living Museum is building. Our students have been presenting their artifacts to the class and we have enjoyed getting a preview of the artifacts and the stories behind them. We are looking forward to seeing you and your extended families at our “launch,” on Sunday morning, March 7, as we all get together via ZOOM. For your convenience, you may RSVP HERE for this remarkable program.


We have also been keeping busy in all areas of our curriculum.


In Hebrew, we continue with regular reading practice, familiarity with siddur vocabulary, new common Hebrew words, and grammatical concepts such as suffixes and past tense.


Prior to Tu B’Shevat we spoke about our concerns regarding the environment. Students enjoyed working in groups to prepare commercials advertising a product which would help with an environmental concern about which they were passionate. All of us enjoyed seeing the presentations of the commercials.


It continues to be a pleasure to work with your children.


L’hitraot,

Mary




Hey 1 & 2 Susie’s Letter

Dear Kitah Hey 1 and 2 Parents,


We want to thank you very much for the very good attendance we have in both our classes. It is gratifying to see our students making the effort to come on time and letting us know if they will be missing a class.

In our Torah class, we have been reading about different aspects of Abraham’s life and discussing his character traits. He was honest and courageous and didn’t hesitate to question God if he saw injustice. We have reached the story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah and students wrote their own Midrashim (interpretations) of why Lot’s wife turned to look back at Sodom and was turned into a pillar of salt. Students came up with different possibilities including the fact that she had left two daughters behind and was hoping they would be following her.

We are looking forward to our Living Museum event on Sunday morning, March 7 and hope you all join us for what is always a very meaningful morning together.

Thank you for your trust in us and for your support!

B'Shalom,

Susie Chalom

Abraham and Sarah have been the focus of our Torah studies. We see that they had faith, confidence and strength to do what was asked of them by God. Abraham is a peacemaker, shows concern for others over himself is hospitable and seeks justice. These are qualities and values which are part of Judaism and which we should all seek to emulate.


It continues to be a pleasure to work with your children.


L’hitraot,

Mary
