חג שמח Chag Sameach! Happy Holiday!
Please come to services during the holiday or at least eat a meal in a Sukkah or visit the BIG Sukkah at the Center and see our beautiful fruit hanging!!
חג הסכות Chag HaSukkot! The Holiday of Sukkot is one of our favorites! We will celebrate all 8 days!!! Especially fun will be our Sukkah Hop on Wednesday, Oct. 4th.
אורחים Orchim Guests We will be guests in several family sukkot (including our own Gould and Wolpoff families) and and we say a BIG תודה רבה Todah Raba to our hosts in advance! Also thanks to our drivers!!! Couldn’t hop without you!!
מינים 4 Arbaah Minim the 4 species of the holiday that we shake are:
אתרוג etrog citron (like a lemon)
לולב lulav palm branch
הדס hadas myrtle branch
ערבה aravah willow branch
We learn the blessing and enjoy the shaking in all directions.
שמחת תורה Simchat Torah Rejoicing in the Torah!! YES!!! This year it will be on Monday evening, Oct. 8th and Tuesday, Oct. 9th. We think that this is the best day of all to celebrate with the Torah. Don’t sit through services…. DANCE!!! We know how!!! We dance every Friday in Kitah Alef for Kabbalat Shabbat and enjoy this with ALL our teachers! Ms. Lewis learned these same dances when she was in school here.
What a busy and fun time of year this is!
שמח sameach happy for a boy
שמחה s’maycha happy for a girl
We are all very happy to finish the Torah and begin it again on this exuberant holiday.
פרשת השבוע Parshat HaShavua Portion of the Week
We have a new book in our class. Each portion that is read from the Torah each week has 2 pages to enjoy. We will enjoy learning about each portion and coloring the pages. We will do this in class on Fridays and if not completed, it will come home. Parshat HaShavua has to be returned to class the next week by Thursday at the latest so we can work on the next portion.
בראשית B’reisheet (In the beginning) Genesis is our first book of Torah portions and each week we will read along with the rest of the Jewish world the portion of the week. WE LOVE LEARNING TORAH!!!
ד Dalet is our new letter!!! The learning in Ariyot continues!!!
Here are words with this letter:
דן Dan a boy in Morah Shira’s virtual class
דינה Dina a girl in Morah Shira’s virtual class
דבש devash honey
דג dag a fish
דגיג dagig a little fish
דגים dagim many fish
Enjoy all the fun of these weeks…. regular weeks with 5 days of school will keep us busy and learning soon enough. Keep reading and singing no matter what day it is!!!
