What a fun week at Temple Israel! On Sunday, Pizmon, an a Capella group from Columbia University, Barnard College, and the Jewish Theological Seminary, came to perform for us and led breakout sessions with us to teach us how to beat box and perform parts of a song. Then, the sixth and seventh grade came together to perform what we learned. The sixth grade had their own special Tefilah service.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, we designed and decorated mezuzot as a culminating project for our previous unit about inclusion and accessibility. One of the main things we noticed was that people who are in wheelchairs, or shorter, are not able to reach the mezuzah when they enter a room. To make this mitzvah more accessible, we will add mezuzot in a lower place from every door.
