The holiday of שבועות Shavuot is the next holiday after that and we will celebrate it on May 30-June 1. We are so proud that we are learning all about the 10 Commandments! Memorizing them in Hebrew AND we can write them in cursive!!
In order to honor the holiday of Shavuot, the giving of the Torah, the Martin J. Gottlieb School is issuing our Ten Commandment challenge to all students in Kitah Alef. The challenge is to memorize all Ten Commandments in Hebrew. Students will first recite them to their Hebrew teacher in class the week of May 22.
All students who demonstrate that they have met the challenge will be HONORED at Shavuot services at the Jacksonville Jewish Center on Wednesday, May 31. The students who are being honored will be called up to the bimah. They will recite the Ten Commandments for the congregation and receive a special reward.
On Tuesday, May 30 ( Erev Shavuot—a half day of school) we will have our Bikkurim ceremony in the morning. We will wear white clothes and bring fruit baskets for the needy.
