This week we learned about the Siege of Masada, a defining moment in Jewish history. We put on a play to learn the story, and followed up with a discussion about the decisions that the Jews on Masada made when confronted with slavery, conversion or death by the Romans.
Grade six learned about the story of Jacob, Rachel and Leah. We spoke about how Jacob worked for 14 years in order to marry Rachel. We also discussed how Rachel and Leah where jealous of each other and how we deal with conflicts with our siblings/ family.
