Message from Rabbi Hahn Tapper
In 2013 a group of researchers at UC Berkeley studied human behavior at 4-way intersections in California. Their research indicated that those who drove “premium” models of cars were more likely “to jump their turn in the 4-way rotation”, thus postulating that those with financial privilege are often less likely to show consideration for the needs of others in the community.

Thank you to all of the parents who helped distribute apples and honey to the students for Rosh Hashanah.
Students in Action
Check out this excitement in grammar class!
On Friday, buddy classes walked together to the Los Gatos Creek for Tashlich. Buddies shared reflections on their actions from the past year and set goals for the year ahead.
Students symbolically cast off their misdeeds from the previous year by tossing bread crumbs into the water. More photos.
Yavneh has been keeping the post office busy with Rosh Hashanah greetings and New Year's Cards.
Kitah Alef Tamar built and painted a post office which included doors, window, letter drops, and signs. They celebrated the grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Gimel Dvash (Dvash means honey) baked honey cake in the Learning Kitchen using a recipe written in Hebrew. Students read the recipe, broke the eggs, mixed in the ingredients, measured everything, and then washed the dishes and cleaned up after themselves.
Kitah Alef connected Yom Kippur to their science unit of liquids and solids by reading 'Bartholomew and the Oobleck' by Dr. Seuss. The children made and explored Oobleck which has qualities of both a liquid and a solid. They wrote and discussed their Oobleck experiment as scientists in Hebrew and English.
Kitah Gimel Halav is learning about the skeletal system.
