Why We Think It’s Important to Learn Hebrew


This week, in preparation for setting a hope and goal for the year (something they’ll work hard to achieve), I asked every Anafimer why s/he thinks it’s important to learn Hebrew. Every one of our second and third graders was so thoughtful. Here are some of their amazing answers (totally unprompted! really!). If I didn’t …

This week, our kevutzot (groups) created decorations to make our environment at the Jewish Enrichment Center beautiful! Shorashim talked about the story of Avraham, noticing his welcoming nature and beautiful tent. And so, this sparked the idea to make our “tent” (the Jewish Enrichment Center) beautiful, too! The Shorashimers started off by my coloring אותיות (ot-i-ot, hebrew …

We took nature walks and filled our baskets with twigs and leafy finds. When we brought them inside we explored their changing צבעים (tzevahem, colors). It was …

Ivrit Throughout the Year (and On the Wall)

Brainstorming words that start with the letter "Resh".

Shteelim has begun to count all the words we’ve learned together. We placed an אות ot (letter) on the wall and …

Yedidut (Friendship) in Nitzanim

We’ve worked things out time after time, learned language that keeps everyone emotionally safe, and we’ve grown in being able to see what’s going on with a friend and respond appropriately. It is such a joy to be a Nitzanimer these days!! We love being together!! …
