Journal #24

6th and 7th   grades:

Describe ONE meaningful Mishloach Manot delivery.

8th grade:

During the seder we read הָא לַחְמָא עַנְיָא . Part of the paragraph tells us

כָּל דִכְפִין יֵיתֵי וְיֵיכֹל, כָּל דִצְרִיךְ יֵיתֵי וְיִפְסַח. 

Let all who are hungry come and eat,

let all who are in need come and make Pesach.

Using these words are a starting point, share how your experience in the MJGDS mitzvah program has impacted you now, and perhaps, for the future.

In your blog post this week define Anti-Semitism. Explain how the Purim story teaches about a fight against Anti-Semitism. Finally, explain how these lessons can be applied to the hatred we are seeing today.
