RELIGIOUS SCHOOL NEWS Our main program in January was a Tu B?shevat Seder. A Tu B?Sehvat Seder can focus on the connection between us, nature, and G-d. A Seder can also celebrate the land of Israel as Tu B?Shevat is a time when trees are planted and the almond trees begin to blossom. Our Seder looked at the symbolism and connection of hope to nature. ?Hope, like trees, starts out in little packages and blossoms if nurtured, just like people.? Classes continued learning from their ISJL curriculum. Topics covered included welcoming guests, empathy, and lifelong Jewish learning. Hebrew classes focused on different prayers from our Shabbat service and our younger students continued learning the Hebrew AlphaBet. Our religious school students will connect to our entire Beth El community through prayer. Certain grades will lead parts of a Shabbat service. Special thanks to our K- 4th grade students and teachers that led us in prayers at our Shir Shabbat February 1st. Our 4th ? 7th graders will have a special Saturday morning Shabbat service on February 23, and our 5th graders will lead us in prayer during the Shir Shabbat in March.
