This week we reviewed the history of Hanukkah and had a fierce debate about the importance and traditions of the holiday. We extended this debate into a conversation about it feels to talk about Hanukkah in non Jewish spaces.
Grade 6 reviewed the story of Jacob and Esau again but this week we spoke about Shalom Bayit. What we can do to have Shalom Bayit and how we can resolve any issues within our family. We learned the importance of forgiveness and the importance of not hold a grudge. Even after 20 years of fighting Esau still hugged, kissed and cried when he was reunited with his brother.
