The sound of the shofar is meant to wake us up so we can look at ourselves and the world around us and decide how to change in the coming year. We asked the Jewish Culture School students to make pictures of what they wished the world would wake up to in the coming year. Here are some of their pictures:
Jewish Culture School students made applesauce cake for Rosh hashanah apart/together on zoom! Everyone’s was delicious!
Enrollment is open for the 2018-2019 year. If you are looking for a hands-on Jewish cultural experience for your children, JCS is for you. Our students sing in English, Hebrew and Yiddish, folk dance, cook Jewish foods from all over the world and learn about Jewish history and culture in an interactive respectful welcoming environment.
This year, the curriculum for the older class (ages 10-14) is Jewish life in the Middle Ages. (2019-2020 is Jewish life in Eastern Europe, 2020-21 is Israel and Sephardic Jews, 2021-22 is holidays and life cycles.)
The younger children will be learning about the shtetl. They’ll cook foods from the time and place, learn some Yiddish words, hear stories, and of course, sing and dance.
You can come meet us this summer at our family pizza night or hikes, or email us at JCS@tri-valleyculturaljews.org.
