- In Jewish studies class we have been learning about the ten plagues. The one we have been working on is blood. This is when God tells Moshe to warn Pharaoh that if he does not let the Jews go all they’re water will turn to blood. Moshe will not harm the Nile because it saved him when he was a baby. Therefore Aharon turns the Nile to blood. I thought that it lasted a year but it really lasted a week. Pharaoh would not let them go. I think that God started with this plague because he wanted to go from less harmful to more harmful.

This year my Parasha was Lech-Lecha. I focused on all the good deeds Avraham did for Lot. He was very kind to Lot and I think that all people should be like Avraham. That is why I am going to start doing good deeds every day. Avraham did everything God said so my life lessen is to live God’s way of peace and loving kindness. My activity was a scavenger hunt because Lech Lecha means going place to place.
My Parsha was about how the Jews built the synigog and how they disign the lead rabi’s cholths. My activity was all the reast of the kids had to draw cloths and then they had to present them. In english this is what my Parsa was: Moses made the Cohen’s clothes. Moses also checked if every thing was as G/d said. When everything was checked and everything was as God said a cloud rose over the synagogue. When the cloud lifted and moved the Jews would follow it and at night it would turn in to a pillar of fire. When the cloud rested the Jews would set up camp and stayed there till the cloud moved again.
My life lesson is to follow G-D and always do what G-D commands.

In class we read a book on five kids who go back in time to the first Passover in Egypt.
Then we made our own.
Mine was that I didn’t know the Passover story and then a tornado took me back in time to the slaves and I listened to them.
Then the tornado came again and took me to the first Passover.
I listened to the asking the mom why they were leaving Egypt.
Then the tornado ( which I named Rainbow the tornado) came back and it took me back home.
Finally I said “ I know it! I know the Passover story”.
In 4th grade, I learned about the High Holidays. In 3rd grade, I learned that Rosh Hashana is when we throw bread in water. This year, I learned the seven steps for correcting my behavior. Last year, I learned that the Sukkah has to be under the sky. This year, I learned that we can put a Sukkah on a camel! In torah I learned to find the right chapter and verse. At the end of learning about the holidays this year, we had a test on the three holidays. It was a hard test for me.
