We have had so much fun at JKG! After spending the first weeks of this semester reviewing, we started our "Journey through the Torah" AND broke into our Hebrew groups for the beginning of the year! Follow along with our adventures below as we learned the story of Noah's Ark, made another Ashkenazi dish, and started our Ivrit (Hebrew) lessons!
Check out a sampling of our nishnushim (snacks) and peulot (activities) from this week!
Some of our friends learned how to make matzo brei, another traditional Ashkenazi dish. We are LOVING our new cooking classes!
After hearing the story of Noah's Ark, JKG students are challenged to complete an obstacle course in pairs--they must get their partner onto the ark!
