Grade 4 Update
Posted on January 31, 2018
Grade 4 has been busy learning about the Avot V’imahot. Reading and reciting is the major component of our prayer learning. As 4th graders, we are also learning to understand our prayers.
Who our ancestors? What is the purpose of our Jewish prayers? These and more questions are being answered during our studies in class. Children are encouraged to ask, “why”. Why these words? Why up to 3 times a day? What is our covenant with God? What are the 3 elements of prayer?
These and more questions are encouraged. One of the gifts of Temple Israel is Rabbi Lieben, he is available to assist in answering our questions. Students find him accessible and easy to interact with.
