  4. We joined the 5th grade Gimmel class outside with Rabbi Prass for Hebrew Through Movement
  5. We split the class into two groups – half the group went with Rabbi Prass into the sanctuary where they assisted in rolling the Torah (we need to go from the book of bereshit (Genesis), which we read on Rosh Hashana to d’varim (Deuteronomy), which we will read on Yom Kippur.  The other half of the class practiced reading the Avot V’Imahot, lines 1-7.  Then we switched.
  6. We ended class by playing a vocabulary review game.

  1. Welcome back! It was great meeting everyone this afternoon.
  2. We began in an all-school assembly with Rabbi Prass.
  3. We jumped into a little Hebrew vocabulary and writing practice, sharing what Beit Sefer (school) we go to, our favorite seret (movie), sefer (book), and our favorite thing l’echol (to eat). We also shared what we did this kaytz (summer).
  4. We joined Rabbi Prass and Madrich Charlie outside for Hebrew Through Movement.
  5. Back in the classroom, we introduced the first bracha (blessing) we’re learning this year, Avot V’Imahot. This is the first blessing in the Amidah, the central prayer section of every service.  Avot means fathers and Imahot means mothers.  This blessing reminds us that our ancestors, Abraham, Issac and Jacob, Sarah, Rebecca, Leah and Rachel each had a special and unique relationship with God. It asks God to watch over us, protect us, and bless us, just as God did for our ancestors. We read lines 1-3.
