Getting Ready for Rosh Hashanah

In kitah bet we are getting ready for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Last week we read a story called, “Why do we blow the shofar in the Hebrew month of Elul?” We learned that the shofar is telling us to: “WAKE UP! A NEW YEAR IS COMING AND WE HAVE TO GET READY!” 

Bolded are the words we are learning in Hebrew.

What items do we need to get ready? 

תַפּוּחִים בִּדְבַשׁApples and honey for a sweet new year. (tapuchim b’dvash)

רִימוֹנִים – Pomegranates to represent all the mitzvot we will do this year. (rimonim)

חָלוֹת עַגוּלוֹת – Round Challah so that we will have a good year all year round. (challot agulot)

מַחֲזוֹר – Special prayer book to read the prayers just for the High Holidays. (machzor)

כַּרְטִיסֵי בְּרָכָה – Rosh Hashanah greeting cards to wish others a Shana Tova. (kartees bracha)


What else can we do to get ready for Rosh Hashanah?

תְּשׁוּבָה – We reflect on our year and think if there’s anything we can do better or change next year. (teshuvah)

סְלִיחָה – We say sorry to anyone we may have wronged. (selicha)

מִצְווֹת – We can do lots of good deeds to prepare for the new year. (mitzvot)

Tu B’shvat

Kitah bet had fun celebrating Tu B’shvat this week!
We read “The Giving Tree” in Hebrew with our shinshinit, Hila.

In class, we acted out the story of the Almond tree who needed her friends to reassure her that she would have her flowers in time for Tu B’shvat.

Finally, we did several crafts to learn about the parts of the tree and the shivat haminim!

Hebrew Homework Feb. 3 – 7

Shavua Tov!

In Ivrit this week we are preparing a skit about a Shkediah (almond tree). The shkediah is very sad because it is almost Tu B’shvat (her birthday) and she doesn’t have any flowers! Her friends come along and help her feel better. We are presenting the skit to kitah alef next Monday!

Each night for homework, please read the Hebrew text and find out the meanings of the underlined words. You do not need to memorize the meanings, or even write them down, just simply look them up to help understand the meaning of the text.

We talked about how we can find the meanings: Google, ask a friend, sibling or parent, check the dictionary or look HERE on the blog. Here are the definitions for this week.
