Hello 3rd Grade Families.
The 3rd Grade class this week studied the holiday of Simchat Torah.
We learned about Simchat Torah which is the holiday that celebrates the completion of reading the Torah and starting the torah a new.
We started the class, by making orgami Torahs. The students did an awesome job with them. After completing our orgami Torahs, each student received a part of the last or first of portion Torah. Then traditionally on Simchat Torah, the Torah's are removed from the Ark and danced with. So we had a dance party where the students danced with their Torah portion parts around the class before circling up to read them aloud. The students then returned to their seats and tucked their part of the torah portion into their origami Torahs.
Also, in celebration of Sukkot each student got the opportunity to shake the Lulav and Etrog.
Please be sure to ensure to make on your calendars the date of March 2nd, 2018 for the 3rd Shabbat Service.
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
