Short Vort:  Do You Have Everything?
The Torah describes how Avraham was blessed with "everything" - Bakol.  Yet, it fails to define what everything precisely was.  The Midrash gives various possibilities.  Why not tell us directly what specifically created his contentment?

In life our happiness is not determined by any one single factor.  Fundamentally, it stems from an attitude.  If we feel we are blessed, more often that will shape our reality.  The Torah didn't define "everything" because that would simply reduce the definition.

Often times, when asked how they are, people respond  with the words - "Baruch Hashem." This ancient expression simply means that God is the source of blessing.  While the concept is is noble, how do the words answer the question?   In reality, the answer is more accurate that anything else we could articulate.  Reality is shaped by our attitude.  King David once said: "If I only had the faith to see Your goodness."  Seeing the good sometimes needs a little faith.  If  we  truly are open to see the Divine blessing, we have a much better chance of having "everything" in life!
Rabbi Daniel Green

Our HHA students will be your hosts and will share their in depth inquiry based projects that pair their learning with its authentic location and that celebrate our Canadian heritage.  

Each grade will present their learning to the community at one of the Westfield's historic sites.  Through dramatic present ations, as well as visual and multi-media displays, our students will showcase their findings either as an entire class or in- partners.   We can't wait to celebrate our glorious country by sharing its history through the curious minds of our children!
