Today we reviewed the story of Purim. It’s a long one… as some would say – it’s a whole Megillah 😉.
We also talked about the mitzvot we do on Purim; 1) Give tzedakah (charity), 2) have a Purim meal, 3) Give mishloach manot (loot bags filled with food), 4) hear the Megillah, the Purim story. We focused on #4 today. We talked about whenever Haman’s name is called, we use our greggor to make noise. We made our very own greggors today. They are currently drying and will be sent home with the children on Feb 25.
A few important notes:
There’s no school next week. Our next class will be on Feb 25.
On Feb 25 all parents are invited to spend the entire morning with us. It will be a very busy day packed with a special Purim activity, Shinshinim, tefilah and a Purim carnival. If you are unable to join us for the entire morning, please come at 10:30 for tefilah and the carnival. However, everyone is strongly encouraged to join us the entire time 🙂
As well on Feb 25 please make sure all children arrive in costume! It’s going to be so much fun!
Have a wonderful long weekend! See you in two weeks!
