JLCMW had a short week this week since we didn't meet on Sunday.
As our Passover unit comes to a close, this coming week Shevet Shalom (grades 2/3), Shevet Or (grades 4/5) and Shevet Atid (grade 6) will be watching the movie The Prince of Egypt. Viewing the movie as a "modern midrash" we will compare the Exodus story as it appears in the Torah and in the movie. Looking carefully at the similarities and differences between the two we will see how even a simple embellishment or omission (of the text) can alter the message and meaning behind the story. We will also circle back to some questions the students raised when we began studying Shemot in January.
The movie is rated PG. You can read more about it on common sense media here
. We will begin the movie on Sunday and complete it on Wednesday.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and Shabbat shalom!
