Parsha Talk

In this week's parsha, Ha'azinu, we read "May my teaching drop like the rain, may my utterance flow like the dew." Sforno understands this to mean that those with great wisdom and discernment can absorb a tremendous amount from the Torah, comparing this amount to the driving rain. However, even those with less understanding can benefit from the smaller amount of Torah learning comparable to flowing dew. Each person can benefit according to his or her learning. 
STEAM Lab on Wheels

When talking about Yom Kippur we talked about apologizing and forgiving our friends. In ECE15 through ECE3 we read about making good choices and explored our reflections. We used our own homemade hanger scale to weigh our choices in ECE4 and Kindergarten.

Seventh-graders in Mr. Duke's Texas History class learned how to make infographics as part of a website-creation project. For a practice lesson, the students celebrated the accomplishments of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, z"l; tracked the COVID-19 pandemic; and recounted the top news stories from Texas over the past Jewish year, 5780. With their new design skills going forward, the students will be challenged to produce infographics to accompany articles that they will write for their websites. Check out some of the creative infographics here.

Chana the Prophetess

Mrs. Pollak's high school Prophets class is studying in depth the story of Chana, our Prophetess. It is from HER that we learn the laws of Tefillah, prayer. She poured out her heart to G-d, she moved her lips, and no sound was heard. She is the role model of how one turns to G-d, directly, with sincere outpouring of one’s thoughts to connect directly with G-d. It is her story and correct actions we read about in our Haftarah on Rosh HaShana.
