Kindergarten Hebrew Studies

Dear Kindergarten parents הורים יקרים,

It was so nice to have so many of you in our classroom for back to school night.

We now had 7 amazing days at Senesh and we learned so much. In the Hebrew/Judaic room we celebrated Shabbat, did Tashlich, sang songs, ate apples and honey, played the shofar, did art projects, played with blocks and toys and begun practicing writing our names in Hebrew. Please see below the list of links, phrases and words.

And please, let us know if you have any questions.

Shabbat Shalom,

Tal and Alex

Tashlich at Turtle Rock / Anna Schnur-Fishman and Susan Schnur

Tashlich (תשליך) is a ritual that many Jews observe during Rosh HaShanah. Tashlich means “casting off” in Hebrew and involves symbolically casting off the sins of the previous year by tossing pieces of bread or another food into a body of flowing water. In kindergarten we drew things we want to remember and tossed away in to water those we are sorry for.
