C lassrooms News

1st Grade: Mrs. Lisa- The first grade Hebrewsaurs have had a great month!  They sang and signed Oseh Shalom at the community Shabbat service wonderfully. The children explored imagery, dreams & fears, faith, and responsibility when discussing who G-d is to them.  Finally, they have furthered their knowledge and comfort with Hebrew letters. They can't wait for the fall events like the bingo activity, grandparent's/special friends day, and the Chanukah program where they will have lots of chances to show what they've learned so far. See you all there!!
2nd/3rd Grade: Miss Risa's 2nd/3rd grade class has had an exciting month. We started our adventure of the Torah with the book of Genesis, learned about Noah and the Ark, studied the laws of keeping kosher which included a lively discussion and wonderful drawings of what a kosher meal would like. The students drew some pretty amazing plates.  
The children are so enthusiastic about learning and participate in class discussions with the same enthusiasm. Until next time...
4th Grade: Mrs. Michelle- Students have thoroughly enjoyed creating their own illustrated Torah one chapter at a time through research and resources.  We are busy working on Hebrew vocabulary and learning Jewish values.
5th Grade: 
The 5th grade has been learning about the stories of Ruth and Devorah. Ruth showed her courage in following Naomi to land far from where she had been raised. Devorah showed wisdom in her leadership of the Jewish people. Both followed their faith in G-d to discover a meaningful life. We have also been looking at the Jewish life in Europe that led to the cultural split between Sephardic and Ashkenzic Jews.


6th Grad e:This month the 6th Grade class of Shalom School has been continuing the study of Jewish history, as our people spread throughout Europe in the diaspora. We tied that to our lessons in G'milut Chasadim, concerning the importance of community in maintaining our identity. Just this past week we looked at the establishment of modern Hebrew, for use in the newly forming State of Israel.
