In the Judaic studies students use the Parashat HaShavua curriculum (TaL AM). Each Parasha features a symbol presented as a riddle; through the study of the Parasha the students discovered the link between the symbol (which is the central message of the portion) and the Parasha. At the end of each Parasha lesson students illustrate a coloring page with the Parasha symbol. At the end of each Chumash unit, the coloring pages become a booklet.
In art, students are also created a 3D printout of the Parasha symbol/shape. All of the shapes are placed on a ring and the students have a visual representation of the central messages from each Torah Portion.
