Eighth graders learned a contemporary Hebrew song by musician and songwriter Idan Amedi. The song is called "Helek M'hazman - חלק מהזמן" (part of the time). It describes the struggles of a single mother raising her two daughters and her life in between hope and despair. The students learned the Hebrew words, discussed the meaning of the song while looking at the metaphors in it, practiced the tune, and had lots and lots of fun creating the video. They even had musicians from the grade play the music! Check it out below:
