Jewish Holidays 2017!

Rosh Hashanah Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish new year. These primary students created fluffy rams to show where we get the shofar the rabbi blows to prepare us to bring in the new year.
Apples dipped in honey for a sweet new year!
Mrs. Sloane-Brenner always has so many fun songs to sing to help the students understand and enjoy their holidays!

Yom Kippur The Day of Atonement Students created their own rabbi tzedakah boxes for Yom Kippur. One side of the scale measures our mitzvah (good deeds) and the other side are things we have done wrong and hope to improve.
Sukkot Sukkot commemorates the years our ancestors spent wandering in the desert and living in temporary dwellings. They made sukkahs from many different materials.

Yummy! Edible sukkahs!
Each year, Beth Abraham sets up a sukkah behind the building. We enjoyed our lunches (and a cookie treat courtesy of Ms. Rochel!) out in the sukkah in the unseasonably mild weather!
