What a fantastic first day of Chabad Hebrew School! We loved seeing all the smiling faces, greeting old friends, and welcoming new ones. Each child received a special Chabad Hebrew School T-shirt, as well as a case to hold their "Torah Dollars" (used to purchase prizes from our Prize Store) We started off with an assembly, welcoming the children and introducing them to Hebrew School and to each other with a fun ice-breaker game. We also had the opportunity to celebrate Shay Fryday's birthday! Happy Birthday to Shay! The children were then divided into their groups and began our typical Hebrew School schedule of Tefillah (Prayer), Hebrew reading (first becoming familiar with each of the lett
What an AMAZING day of learning and fun at Chabad Hebrew School on Sundayl! Some take away lessons we covered: Humans were the last to be created, since the world was created for them. Our job is to partner with G-D to do goodness & kindness to make this world a Home for Hashem. We can use everything in the world for a positive purpose. G-D's first words after creating the world, (like His mission statement) was "Let there be Light" - This is our purpose in life, to be pillars of light! Check out the pictures of our CHS kids adding light to the world!
Just look at the smiles and excitement on these children's adorable faces! This past Sunday in Hebrew School, we covered the second Torah portion of Noah and the flood. We discussed how we always have second chances. We learned about the moral and social conduct for all of humanity. The kids eagerly continued their aleph bet books, as we journeyed on to the next letters in the aleph bet.
we focused on the 3rd Torah portion, going through the life of Avraham- the 1st Jew - who was the pioneer of monotheism. We discussed the importance of standing strong in what you believe in even if it may not be popular, and also the Mitvzah of hospitality, which Avraham excelled at. We played a fun Aleph Bet game "around the world," and continued with our Aleph-Bet and Torah Scrapbooks. Next week will be the opening of our Prize Store, where kids can buy prizes with their well-deserved Torah dollar
Congrats to all our hard-working Hebrew School Students! This past Sunday, the Torah Prize Store opened up, and kids were able to purchase some prizes with their Torah dollars.
The younger class has finished the first 6 letters of the Aleph-Bet, and the older class has finished the first 13 letters.
This past week, we focused on the Jewish value of inviting guests into our home and how we treat others, based on the story of Abraham and Sarah, and how welcoming they were to others. We also discussed the first mitzvah given to Abraham - that of circumcision.
What a fun way to start the year. We got to design and create our very own JKC T-shirts. We learned all about prayer and communicating with G-D. Everyone brought home a Mitzvah Mission. For thanking G-D in the morning by saying the Modeh Ani prayer, each child will receive a special charm that they can wear proudly on a Mitzvah bracelet.
