Using the שמע to connect to עם ישראל

Today, the kids approached Jewish grown-ups to ask them whether or not they knew the שמע. By learning more about the Jewish people around them, the kids begin to connect with the concept of a “Jewish community” that is both local and global–otherwise known as עם ישראל (am yisrael  – the people of Israel). We at the Jewish Enrichment Center believe that this is a central concept behind the שמע–to connect us to other Jews across space and time.
