Shalom Kitah Vav Parents-

In Judaica class we compared the similarities and differences in the origins, customs, languages, foods, of the Ashkenazic and Jewish Communities. We also discussed how Yiddush was the language spoken by the Ashkenazic community and shared some appropriate Yiddish words we have heard and their meanings. We also learned about the contributions of Rabbi Solomon Ben Isaac known as Rashi, who wrote comprehensive commentaries on the Bible and the Babylonian Talmud in simple explanations with words and concepts that people could understand. Both classes participated in creating a mural with facts and illustrations highlighting the similarities and differences between the Ashkenazic and Sephardic communities. Scroll down for photos and you are welcome to view the mural on our Vav bulletin board upstairs near our classrooms. See links below if you would like to know more about last night’s lesson.

Please save the date of Saturday, night April 6th for our Vav Havadalah program. More details of timing to follow. Our Vavniks met with Cantor Fogelman during clergy to learn the Havadalah blessings.

The Miss Barton Chocolate order forms are due back March 18th. support this important CJL fundraiser.

Shavua Tov,
























Shalom mishpachot!

It was wonderful to see all of our students after the February vacation. They were certainly happy to be together again.

In Hebrew class we examined the Purim story by writing the names of the characters in Hebrew and talking about their qualities. We used a word association technique - pictures attached. We briefly touched on how the story relates to us today. Next week will go a little deeper into the theme of standing up to bullies, one of the major lessons of Purim.

The students watched The Purim Story in 4 minutes (also known as: Go Esther!) - a big hit. Some of the students were at the Merkaz l'Ivrit at the time, so please share it with them.

With Cantor Fogelman, the students dived deeper into the Havdalah service to prepare for their April 6th service.

NEXT WEEK I will introduce the Havdalah unit in Hebrew-in-Harmony. Once again, the students will need to make recordings of the prayer. I understand that for some of you, the technology was a struggle. Once again, I will try to help you find work-arounds. Hopefully you'll agree that this method of recording in the privacy of home plus the personal feed-back was worth the effort.
