Tonight we worked from the CHAI curriculum and studied "My Jewish Identity: What Must I Do." The students were given a set of three questions to answer by writing down bullet points and preparing to make a presentation in front of the class:

Question 1. Think about everything that you have learned in your Jewish education so far and identify the most important behaviors for a Jewish adult.

Answers included studying the Torah, helping other people and teaching younger students good things.

Question 2. What are things that you do every day that reflect your Jewish values?

Answers included looking out for friends, doing what my parents tell me to do, and being a caring and kind person.

Question 3. Think about a time in your life when you experienced the "Hineini" feeling, or really being there for someone else.

Answers included helping my friends when they get sick, being there for a friend who lost a relative, helping friends with homework, and being there for a friend who had cancer.

Your children continue to express themselves from the heart, talking about their true feelings on various subjects. It continues to be a wonderful class and I am looking forward to the final two months of the year.
