Hebrew resources for the summer

Happy summer!

To maintain and keep your level of Hebrew, it is highly recommended to regularly practice your Hebrew by watching Hebrew TV and videos and by completing worksheets and learning activities at your level.

The best way to learn is to find a friend to talk with using Hebrew.

Here are resources for worksheets and learning activities in Hebrew: Negba  ,  Kotar .

 

You will find below, links to Israeli TV videos, where you’ll enjoy both Hebrew and Israeli culture.

Grade 6 Luach Assignment (Calendar)

This week Grade 6 worked on their holiday assignment. Many of the students know about the Chagim (holidays) but are not aware where the laws, customs, and traditions are derived from. We introduced the Shulchan Aruch, Rambam, and other Talmudic type sources.

The students will be presenting their findings to the whole class.

Grade 8 Weekly Round-Up

An amazing week!!! The students started to present their case studies. One student discussed, according to Judaism, what is our responsibility towards individuals in need. Are there charitable organizations we should prioritize?

 

Another case study focused on Tattoos.  If one survives a life-threatening illness can one celebrate life with a Tattoo? If grandchildren of Holocaust survivors want to tattoo their grandparents’ numbers on their arms, is that acceptable?

I look forward to the rest of the presentations upon our return.

Below is one of our presentations:
