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 …

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 …

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 …

Anafim rocks out with the the rabbis

This past week was super exciting in Anafim! Our loyal readers will remember that we left off our study of hashavat aveidah with a sense that the Torah text didn’t really give all the information we needed to return on lost object to its owner. So we turned to the early rabbis for help. We …

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 …

Reinvigorating Ivrit in Anafim

The Anafimers have come such a long way in their study of Ivrit! We have children reading dialogues in Ivrit and even changing up the words in a sentence to make an even sillier sentence that still makes sense grammatically! Another huge milestone in Ivrit is the familiarity children have with the language that they …

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. …

Torah Scholars and Interpreters in Anafim

Anafim began the third theme of the year this past week, Hashavat Aveidah (returning lost objects) by examining the biblical verses which command that one not hide from the responsibility of returning objects to the owner. Anafim had quite the task ahead of them as they thought through how the biblical verses could help them …
