Dear Grade 7 and 8 Ivrit students,
A warm welcome as you embark on an exciting journey into your new class! It’s incredible to see your growth and achievements, and I am thrilled to have you continue your academic adventure with me. To the parents, thank you for your continued support. As your children step into this new chapter, I look forward to another great year. shanna Tovah Umetuka!
Students step into the shoes of the Young Travellers who visited Shmurat Tal in the North of Israel. They wrote beautiful letters to their parents describing their experience from this beautiful place. Here are some of the postcards that they send to their families:
Dear OJCS Community,
We would like to share with you our grade 8 Hebrew object and stories project.
We are very proud of their work.
Please select the symbols to view the full presentation.
I am very excited to meet you and be your Hebrew teacher. Although we meet through the screen, it does not reduce the excitement and anticipation of meeting you. I’m still in Israel … so, Teacher Tal will replace me until I get to Canada. I’m sure we’ll have a great year of experiential learning and a lot of fun. Wishing you and your families a happy, productive and especially healthy New Year.
.אֲנִי מְאֹד נִרְגֶּשֶׁת לִפְגּושׁ אֶתְכֶם וְלִהְיוֹת הַמּוֹרָה שֶׁלָּכֶם לְעִבְרִית
.אָמְנָם אָנוּ נִפְגָּשִׁים דֶּרֶךְ הַמָּסָךְ, אַךְ אֵין זֶה מַפְחִית מֵהַהִתְרַגְּשׁוּת וְהַצִּפִּיָּיה לִפְגּושׁ אֶתְכֶם
.אֲנִי עֲדַיִן בְּיִשְׂרָאֵל… לָכֵן, הַמּוֹרָה טַל תַּחֲלִיף אוֹתִי עַד שֶׁאַגִּיעַ לְקָנָדָה
.אֲנִי בְּטוּחָה שֶׁתִּהְיֶה לָנוּ שָׁנָה נֶהְדֶּרֶת שֶׁל לְמִידָה חֲוָויָיתִית וַהֲנָאָה רַבָּה
.מְאַחֶלֶת לָכֶם וְלַמִּשְׁפָּחוֹת שֶׁלָּכֶם, שָׁנָה טוֹבָה, פֹּרִיָּה וּבְעִקָּר בְּרִיאָה
The year has come to an end and like every year, it is always hard to say goodbye. It is especially hard to say goodbye after teaching an amazing group of students for so many years. In Hebrew we say “Lehitraot ve Lehishtamea” which means “we will see each other and hear from you” , I hope that this is a Lehitraot and Lehishtamea and that you will keep in touch and come visit us.
I am adding a list of excellent resources for you so you can continue to keep your Hebrew skills fresh in the future.
