SUNDAY CLASSES- Grades 3-6 Judaics Teacher Updates (week of 5/23/21)

3rd Grade Judaics 

This past week we began to summarize the material we learned this year. We started with all we learned in the Labriut material- with the terms Sukkat Shalom, Ometz Lev and Kehillah. We also visited Eilat and went over the different places that we visited in Israel.

No Class over Memorial Day Weekend!

For the next and final class we will be doing a summarizing Kahoot, so please make sure that your child has an additional device or a way to do kahoot.  This will fill up the bulk up the time and it is essential that they will be able to participate. Please let me know if there are any issues and happy to assist. 


4th Grade (Faleder)

We reviewed how the holiday of Shavuot was connected to the other high holidays.  While the holiday of Shavuot may be a holiday that is not as celebrated by some as much as Sukkot and Passover, it is nonetheless a holiday that can´t be ignored.  We intertwined the weekly parsha into our discussion of the mishkan, about honoring Hashem and seeing the torah as a source of providing us with a guide as to how we should act in the world towards others and to ourselves.

No Class over Memorial Day Weekend!
4th Grade Judaics (Braune-Friedman)

This week in Talmud Torah we discussed Parshat Naso and Baseless Hatred.  We also did some tefillah together including Havdallah and the Shema.

No Class over Memorial Day Weekend!

5th Grade Judaics (Moss)

This week we concluded our K'hillah module.  We did several activities to explore commonalities among our group as a way to strengthen the bond among the class even if we are apart on Zoom. 

No Class over Memorial Day Weekend!

6th Grade Judaics (Epstein) Parshat B' heavy was the MISHKAN? Why? Who carried it? Responsibilities to animals..tzar baalei chayim. Ended with our own tefillah.

No Class over Memorial Day Weekend!

6th Grade Judaics (Berner)

Together as a group we studied short summaries of 3 different parshiot, paying special attention to what message we could take away for a D'var Torah. 
We also welcomed Rabbi Berkowitz for Tefillah and learned a bit about how the Shabbat Service is structured!

Worksheet for Writing a D'var Torah
List of Torah Readings

3rd Grade Hebrew (Moss)

This week played several games to review Modeh Ani and solidify our vowel and letter skills. Have a great summer!

Please send us pictures of your 3rd grader/family from Haggigat haSiddur with your new siddur!


4th Grade Hebrew (Braune-Friedman) We reviewed Adon Olam and Friday night Kiddush.  I will send a review packet out for the summer as I strongly suggest reviewing over the summer.


4th Grade Hebrew (Sumner) Being the final lesson for this year the students shared they thought about it and about their summer plans. We also played games related to some of the blessings we learned throughout the year.  
5th Grade Hebrew (Kenig) A good bye note to parents: It was a true pleasure teaching your child this school year. We have accomplished a lot via Zoom and I have got to know each of my students in his/her personal surroundings. I highly recommend for each student to practice reading the prayers over the summer months as well. Wishing you all a safe and fun summer vacation. Morah Kenig


6th Grade Hebrew (Epstein)

For our last week of Talmud Torah, we are doing everyone's favorite prayer. We also discussed what we accomplished in Kitah Vav. We ended with a folktale, The Scratched Diamond, using the theme from Pirkey Avot: "Turn it, and turn it, for everything is in it."

Thank you for the opportunity to educate your children this year!

6th Grade Hebrew (Sumner) Being the final week for this year I asked the children to share their thoughts and feelings about the end of the year and to share about  their plans for the summer. We also reviewed the tefillah Ashrei through a game.
