JUDAICA

This lesson was the second of a two-part lesson on psalms. We talked about how music often leads to very emotional reactions from people. We discovered that psalms can emit a range of emotions from people. I showed the students two songs that were based on psalms and we talked about their reactions. Most students thought the songs were way too sad and felt very down after listening to them. I asked them what they would like to see in psalms and a variety of answers came up. I thought it could be helpful for the students to try and come up with their own psalms. They loved this idea and we ended class with sharing our own psalms, some that were set to music and some that were not.

HEBREW

In class today, I made the morning just a Hebrew day. Our madrichim worked with the students on Shema and V'ahavta, Avot/Imahot, Gevurot and Ma Tovu. These prayers will be our focus over the next few classes. We also spent a few minutes discussing some of the meanings of Shema and V'ahavta as discussed in the text.

Best, 

Jeff
