This week in Jewish Studies, we read a story about all of the things in the world (people, plants, animals, the oceans, the sun, the planets, etc). Then, we discussed who created all of those things – God! Next, we talked about what existed before this Creation. Things were there, but they were without form.תֹ֙הוּ֙ וָבֹ֔הוּ Nothing was organized. In our classroom, we created pictures of this תֹ֙הוּ֙ וָבֹ֔הוּ
We also did an activity last week using the initials from our names. Using our first and last initials, we created Hebrew words. Although some of the initials were very challenging, this was still an excellent activity for our brains!
In Parashat Lech L’cha, we learned about the promise that God gave Abraham, that his descendants would be as numerous as the stars in the sky. Then, we made paper stars, decorated with our names, which we hung from the ceiling. This is a visual representation of God’s promise.He would make him a great nationncludes us, his descendants!.
