!בְּרוּכִים הַבָּאִים יְלָדִים יְקָרִים

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
