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 …

Anafim 5774 Hashavat Aveidah Presentation

  Below are the words of the Anafim children compiled by their Morah (educator).   Girl, age 7: We read the Torah verses that introduce Hashavat Aveidah, returning lost objects. We noticed the last words, “Don’t hide from the responsibility.” We thought that the Torah tells you to do Hashavat Aveidah but it does not tell …

Celebrating Together

Nitzanim came in to the Jewish Enrichment Center ready to learn and explore! Before they even made it upstairs, we were already noticing the new signs around the building pointing to Anafim’s new and improved lost and found box. One child came in with a BIG question. He came in and observed that losing objects …

Anafim Roundup

There were too many great pictures this past week in Anafim to just choose one theme or narrative! I’ve decided to share snippets of what we are up to. A big part of Anafim has been using the vocabulary we have acquired over the year in full, crazy sentences. We have a whole gallery of …

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 …

Preparing to Say Shalom in Shalom Chaverim

This week in Shalom Chaverim, children and parents worked together to create an object to commemorate our year together. Children (and some parents!) painted away to create squares that will form a Shalom Chaverim quilt. Then everyone– parents and children alike– had a chance to get their hands dirty (really dirty!) by stamping handprints on …

Shorashim Takes On Some Challenges

This week Shorashim talked a bit about Shavuot and took on some exciting challenges! We focused our Shavuot explorations about the harvest aspect: we were inspired by pictures we had of various fruit and flowers that grow in spring and drew our own interpretations of them, as well as pictures of some other plants we …

Nitzanim Thinks Like the Rabbis

This week, over kibud, we read the Mishna from Bava Metzia 2:2, which talks about what kinds of things you must “proclaim” if you find them.   This is what our children had to say on what you’d need to return:   Girl 1:  It depends on what it is.  If it’s a penny, that’s …

Shorashim Decorates the Tzedakah Box

The short week didn’t stop Shorashim from having some thought provoking discussions!  With the paint now dry on our tzedakah box, we had a lot more to discuss. First we had to add other decorations.  In order to get ideas, we went out to take a look at how we decorated the Lost and Found …

Anafim in action!

After our adventures last week, the Anafimers got down to business designing a new system for Hashavat Aveidah (returning lost objects) at 5200 S. Hyde Park Blvd. They decided a bright colored lost and found box was necessary, as well as signs and flyers letting everyone know where the box is located. This was a …
