HaSefer Sheli (My Book)

At some point this past week your child(ren) probably brought home a whole mess of totally awesome stuff they created at the Jewish Enrichment Center over the past year. One of them most definitely was their HaSefer Sheli. They completed this book in Yetzirah to review all those great things they learned and remember fun …

Process & Paint Strokes

This week I was mesmerized by Shorashim’s paintings, specifically their paint strokes. This session of yetzirah was pretty open-ended, as we were painting a background for a page in their end-of-the-year reflection books. The only prompt children were given was: “Cover the page in tzevah (color)!” using crayons then watercolor. I began to notice a …

Mischakim After Shirah/Tefillah

The school year is ending, the weather is warmer and the kiddos are getting restless! Out with the Yoga Chayot. In with the Mischak Stations! Morah Esther has created some really fun stations: balance bean bags on your head, jump the creek, hula hoop, hopscotch, and ball balance- all while counting b’ivrit or challenge yourself …

Stained Glass… Again!

Did you know there are so many different ways to replicate the look of stained glass?! This week Nitzanim did yet another version of stained glass using water color and tape! First they drew a basic Torah shape, like a rectangle with two lines at the top and bottom for etzem. Then they covered that …

Ha Safair Sheli הספר שלי (My Book)

As the Jewish Enrichment Center comes to its last month of 5774, in Yetzirah all of the children are reflecting and showing off what they’ve learned! They have started making some what of a memory book that they are calling הספר שלי (Ha Sefair Sheli, My Book). In this book we will revisit each theme (from Rivkah, to Beit …

Yoga Chayot, Teva, Pesach and Shavuot!

Every Wednesday after Shirah/Tfillah the children and I do yoga together. It started out as a movement break while only speaking Hebrew. But as time went on, they learned more and more Hebrew and needed more of a challenge. So we did Yoga Teva taking them through the cycle of a grown plant or tree. …

Let’s Start Counting!

It’s that time again! Starting the second night of Pesach we count 7 weeks or 49 days until the next holiday, Shavuot. This is called the Counting of the Omer. At the Jewish Enrichment Center we count together during Shirah/Tfillah at the end of each day with a hand made calendar. Shorashim, Nitzanim and Anafim …

All Those Projects

Hey parents! Here is a guide to that pile of masterpieces you took home this week from your budding artists. All children brought home a matzah cover dyed and stamped with natural dye. This means food and spices were used to color these beauties! (You might even still smell the tumeric or coffee on them!) …

Nitzanim Adds Color to their Clay Creations

This week Nitzanim finished their final Beit Knesset project. And for those who chose to sculpt an object out of model magic, it was time to add color! It was exciting to see their process! I was expecting realistic depictions of ancient Torahs and silver yads (pointer for reading Torah). Instead, color was splashing everywhere! …
