Finding the Shema

Today, the Shorashim learners continued their hunt for the Shema by visiting the Rodefei Tzedek chapel. We found it written in the Torah! Each child took a turn standing and reading the Shema alongside Morah Shif. Many learners were able to recognize and point to the letters that spell “Shema”–“shin,” “mem,” and “ayin.”

A Shorashim learner follow along as Morah Shif reads the Shema from the Torah.

Now we know that the Shema is not only written on the klaf (scroll) in the mezuzah, but also in the most important book for the Jews!
