Diving in

Yup! It’s happened…

ענפים (Anafim, “branches” for 3rd-4th grade) have shifted gears. They’ve taken their own ideas about קדושה (kedushah, holiness); deepened, sharpened, or expanded them in conversation with each other and the Jewish texts we’ve explored; and now they’re starting to channel these ideas through their unique creative visions. The classroom has bustled with activity this week as 17 children started gathering materials, drafting plans, and began work on their own, widely varying projects.

What does it look like?
