JKG Sunday: April 7th, 2019

2nd Year B’Nei Mitzvah Class

To learn about the holiday of Passover, we are...

  • Playing Hangman to review the Jewish matriarchs and patriarchs and working in groups to order key events in the Passover story.

  • Discussing how Moses had two identities, an Egyptian one and a Jewish one, and exploring what sort of different identities we hold.

  • Creating our own ancient Egyptian style scarab seals, with our names written in hieroglyphs and hebrew letters to represent the two identities held by Moses.

Ask your student...

  • What were some of the identities you thought of that you carry?

  • Do any of them conflict sometimes?

  • How do you resolve that conflict for yourself?
