Third grade is in the middle of a an adventure to find a wife for Yitzhak – just kidding, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re not actually finding him a wife, but they are reading all about it in the Torah!!! TheyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve already learned that finding a Ã¢â‚¬Å“nice Jewish girlÃ¢â‚¬Â was important even in the Torah, because KINDNESS was the key quality Eliezer was looking for in a match for Yitzhak, and he found it in Rivka, who gives water to him and his camels. Stay tuned to see if sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s willing to travel back to Canaan to marry Yitzhak!
We also read the story of AvrahamÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s search for a burial site for Sarah, and how he used smart business strategies (always have a witness to your deals!) and came to own land in Israel. Additionally, we are finishing up Ã¢â‚¬Å“Ahavah RabaÃ¢â‚¬Â and we will soon be starting an introduction to the Amidah during our Tefillah times.
