Atonement is a big idea for the little people in Shalom Chaverim. Together last Sunday we explored simple, concrete ideas together as we form the beginnings of our Jewish identities.
A big focus of the day was white. We talked about wearing white on Yom Kippur, and made multi-media white collages together. As we worked, we talking about being the best people we can be in the new year– and about what we do when we have made choices that weren’t the best.
We wrapped up our day with a really special field trip together.
We walked all together to the sanctuary to explore what was special for Yom Kippur. We were even able to peek inside the ark to see the Torah, wrapped in white.
