Chaverim Through the Year

The families of שָׁלוֹם חֲבֵרִים (Shalom, Chaverim! – Welcome, Friends! for ages 0 – 3 and their grown-ups) are wrapping up the school year by revisiting the חַגִים (chaggim, holidays) we explored.

Children could color holiday images while examining holiday objects, or hunt for items in the sensory bin.

Our explorations included a “feely box.” Children put their hands inside to feel and identify holiday objects.

We also introduced the upcoming Jewish holiday of Shavuot, which the ancient early rabbis connected to Moses receiving the Ten Commandments at Mt. Sinai. We examined a demonstration Torah with magnifying glasses. The Torah was opened to the Ten Commandments!
