Today we learned about Shavuot, the holiday where we received the Torah, especially the Ten Commandments! We learned about the Jewish people going to Har Sinai (Mount Sinai) and getting the Ten Commandments. We discussed how Moshe went up the mountain and was there for 40 days. In the meantime, the Jewish people behaved really badly and made a golden calf to be their new God. However, not all the Jews participated. Nevertheless, when Moshe came down the mountain he was so angry by what he saw that he smashed the tablets. The Jewish people had to repent and then Moshe went back up the mountain to get the second set. Whew!
We reviewed the Ten Commandments, and despite some issues with the paper cutter, we glued the ordered Commandments on tablets. 😊
See everyone next week!!
