2nd Grade Reflects on Tishrei Holiday Traditions
Miri Allali, 2nd Grade Hebrew & Jewish Studies Teacher
Kita Bet has been focusing on Tishrei holidays and our traditions and connection to past generations. For Sukkot, our learning objectives included the importance of sitting in a Sukkah, visiting with guests, eating or even sleeping!
We have been talking about temporary shelters, and how because the Israelites were traveling in the Desert, they needed one. What makes a solid sukkah structure that can protect you from the hot sun, yet still allows some air to come in and the stars to stay visible? We talked about the rules to make a kosher sukkah. We have been working on building mini sukkot following the important rules of making strong shelters for traveling in the desert.
