Boker and Leyla

Shorashim learners draw nightscapes.

Today, Shorashim learned more about how the Shema fits into the morning (boker) and the night (leyla). Many Jews say the Shema when they go to bed at night and/or during morning prayers. To cement this connection and further explore the concept of “Jewish time,” we played two “Boker Tov! Leyla Tov!” (“Good Morning! Good Night!”) games. We also made beautiful spinning disks with nighttime and daytime scenes in Chadar Yetzirah (the Project Room).
