Jewish Studies 7th and 8th

By in

I’ve had so much fun working with the 7th and 8th graders in Jewish Studies for the past two weeks. I’ve never seen such zesty, deep thinkers in my eleven years of teaching! Last week we established Community Norms around work, and this week we are diving into content. 7th Graders have begun researching the Jewish Calendar as well as Jewish Traditions and Customs. 8th Graders have worked hard on deeply thinking and asking themselves questions that will help guide them into understanding who they are as Jews.
