Shir Tikvah Hebrew/Sunday School

We at Shir Tikvah are excited to offer a program for children and families that will be creative, innovative and meaningful. Our goals will include:

  1. Educate and prepare for the bar/bat mitzvah

  2.  Understand and practice Jewish values

  3. Develop a knowledge of basic Jewish literacy.

  4.  Prepare for life as a Jew in the modern world.

Pesach Break will occur March 28 thru April 4.  Chag sameach!  “Next year not on Zoom!

Our Hebrew students are finishing preparations for the virtual Reform Shabbat services on April 10. Hebrew teacher Carole Fefferman has challenged our students by assigning them different prayers from previous services and adding the K’dusha.  The virtual evening community service for Yom HaShoah will be held on Thursday April 8 at 7 p.m.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

Sunday School with the Rabbi and Sherry Dieckman continued its virtual focus on the geography and history of Israel thru videos and readings.  We enjoyed a lesson on Israeli elections and a mock election with Arkady Hasidovich, the remote Shaliach from Haifa.  His last lesson April 11 will cover Yom HaAtzma’ut (Israel Independence Day), which will be observed April 15, and he will answer questions about Israel and Israeli life. 

 

We are beginning to plan for the 2021-2022 Hebrew and Sunday School classes.
