photo (21)

Over the past two weeks in Shteelim, we’ve started a full exploration of פסח (Pesach—Passover). Kindergarteners have been working on  מה נשתנה (Ma Nishtanah -The Four Questions) in new משחקים (Mischakim-games), making a fabric banner יצירה (Yetzirah-art/creativity), and lots of singing as we walk or play. Most Shteelimers will be ready to sing the מה נשתנה (Mah Nishtanah …

Nitzanimers are learning a little bit about the way that Jewish people living in Cochin, India celebrate פסח (Pesach—Passover). We are spending the rest of this week creating a בית (bayit—house) in India and filling it with all of the things we might need for a seder so that we can celebrate after spring break. …

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 …

Shorashim Hides and Finds the Afikomen

Photo Apr 20, 9 44 16 AM

Shorashim had a fantastic week as we celebrated the end of פסח (Pesach – Passover).  To honor the last two days, we didn’t write or draw or use electronics, leaving us with fewer pictures than usual; but that doesn’t mean we were any less busy or having any less fun! As we’ve mentioned over the …

Nitzanim Celebrates Together

uEzC1ZKsErIiV8cSUTLDWppQXmoY44-Gl_zhvnJ8PCs

To mark the last two days of Pesach as chag (a special holiday day), Nitzanim did a few things differently.  We put away our markers and our normal favorite Yetzirah supplies. Instead, we worked together to mark those days as uniquely special. Since it was chag, we don’t have any pictures of the days themselves, …

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 …

Pesach in Shalom Chaverim

20140423-210205.jpg

Exploring Pesach in Shalom Chaverim this week looked like a lot of ways to play with matzah. There were bags to decorate so we could hide and find, cover and uncover our matzah. There was matzah to smash. There were even pictures of matzah to add to play dough creations. And, of course, there was …

Shorashim has been thoroughly enjoying acting out the story of Pesach in a variety of ways.  Without further ado, here are some highlights from the story with some artistic embellishments our Shorashim actors included.  (NOTE: The pictures are taken from multiple renditions so the roles are represented by a few different actors.)   Pharoah was …

Learning to Disagree

Photo Apr 07, 2 34 58 PM

This week, Nitzanim struggled with a big realization: not EVERYONE at the כיבוד שולחן [kidbbud shulchan; snack table] has the same opinion as me! To help respect all our ideas, we practiced saying the phrase, “I disagree with __” during our debates. The phrase came up while we wondered about why Pharoh was afraid of the …

All Those Projects

20140410-074731.jpg

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!) …
