(sorry) origin Jewish customs.
See you Tuesday!
Dear Vibrant Vavniks,
We will continue to look for expressions of Ashkenazic Jewish mitzvot in Fiddler on the Roof this week. Remember to come prepared with some information about the differences between Ashkenazic (Eastern European-origin) and Sephardic (Spanish/North African/Middle Eastern-
I wanted to let you know that I introduced the kids, today, towww.mitzvahmission.com. www.mitzvahmission.com is a fun way to do a new mitzvah each month while learning a little about that mitzvah and Israel at the same time.
After the kids do their mitzvah, they can blog about their experience on the Mitzvah Mission Blog (that way I can see all the wonderful work they are doing!)
I'll check in with the kids throughout the year to see how their mitzvah missions are going but in the meantime - I invite you to visit www.mitzvahmission.com and share in the fun with your kids!
Thanks and Gamar Tov,
My Vivacious Vavniks,
Shanah Tovah! I hope your holiday was spiritual and delicious.
You are already becoming serious Torah scholars. Your discussion about what it means to "busy ourselves" with Torah (the prayer we say before learning) was thoughtful and creative. I enjoyed your families' thoughts about what a mitzvah is. Did you challenge them with what we learned about the Hebrew word? That mitzvah means commandment and that the common understanding of giving money or doing acts of lovingkindness is only part of our obligation? We will continue to confront and struggle with how to understand being "commanded" today.
This week we will begin to look at how mitzvot are expressed in different Jewish communities by viewing some parts of Fiddler on the Roof.
As always, you or your parents can reach me here or at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone or text at 781-738-6634.
Just a reminder to all of our 6th and 7th grade girls and their moms about a really spectacular opportunity:
BENEATH THE SURFACE:A Program for Bat Mitzvah Girls and their MothersBeneath the Surface is a program for mothers and bat mitzvah age girls to celebrate their relationship during this time of transition through learning, sharing and ritual creation. It offers mothers and daughters an oasis in time to connect -- with each other, with their Jewish roots and traditions, and with Jewish ritual -- ancient and new, established and creative. This three-Sunday afternoon program will run on October 16, 23, and November 6 at Mayyim Hayyim in Newton from 3:00 – 5:30pm.The program was developed at Mayyim Hayyim and is led by trained facilitators.Thanks to support from CJP's Innovation Grants, the subsidized fee for this 3-class program is $118 per family. Scholarships are available.
You may have been confused by my last post. Well, I was confused! As we all know now, you were at Makor yesterday. I hope your session answered your questions and got you psyched about this year! I'm looking forward to meeting you next Tuesday.
Please bring a composition book or notebook for your journal, and a SEPARATE binder with paper and pockets (or notebook and folder).
You and your parents can email me at email@example.com or call or text me at 781-738-6634.
Shalom, Kitah Vav! I hope you had an awesome day at Prozdor today. I can't wait to hear all about it. We will be meeting second period on Tuesday. We have a brand-new course for you exploring what "Mitzvah" means to us today and how it is expressed in different Jewish communities. Please bring a composition book and a 3-ring binder with pockets to each class. Can't wait to meet you!
ilana had a nice year-thanks!
