HaShavua ~ Nevonim
October 9, 2015 ~ Tishrei 26, 5776
Hello, all! In this short week we marked both Simchat Torah and beginning the Torah again.
To celebrate we:
- explored mini-Torahs and how to roll and unroll them
- took a Torah tour of the shul. We found 4 real Torah scrolls!
- had a Torah parade and joyfully sang "sisu v'simchu!"
- Ohr/Choshech - light and dark: we made art with black and white mixed media--pencils, pastels, crayons, and chalk. The children cut paper into snips that were then used in collages.
- drilled holes with hand drills in a stump of a wood from the yard
- created ephemeral art with natural materials on felt circles, and
- discussed safety with our bodies and our toys, remembering that saliva is for inside our mouths
Shabbat Shalom umevorach!
Judy, Ruth and Ofra
