It has been wonderful to start our new year of Jewish learning and Hebrew together at school. Students have been busy listening, speaking, reading and writing Hebrew and consolidating their knowledge from last year. We have also welcomed new students to the school who are beginning their journey of learning Hebrew, which is exciting!
In Jewish Studies we started our learning by grappling with a selected Jewish text, saying or story from Jewish Tradition. These texts were selected to encourage students to engage with text and to question, interpret and apply these texts to their own lives and experiences. In the coming weeks I will share their students’ thinking around these sayings.
Our Primary Jewish Life Leadership Team; Mia Chesler, Joel Ginges, Mirabella Marshall, Jasper Shraibman and Ashley Unger have already met to begin planning what we hope will be an exciting year of Jewish Life celebrations and activities at school. We are looking forward to working with our alumni Josh New and Mia Shapiro in 2022.
