PreK-5 need foods and Passover flash cards for Hebrew class

Please make sure your PreK-5 student has their Pesach flash cards available for use in class. They are in the latest yellow folder you picked up. Here is a link to pictures of the Pesach flashcards if you need that for reference.

If you have the following in your cupboards, please let your student use them for Hebrew class:

  • Matzoh
  • Chametz (Bread or crackers, cookies, etc.)
  • Horseradish and/or bitter greens such as endive, lettuce, etc.
  • Celery or parsley
  • Charoset

If you don’t have these foods on hand, not to worry.

PreK-7 La-bri’ut Lesson (Judaism)

In K’hillah Lesson 3, students continue their study of K’hillah (community). They consider, “What is my responsibility to the k’hillah? What is the responsibility of others in the k’hillah to me?” Students explore what is possible to do in a community that you cannot do alone ideally because those in a k’hillah share in activities and with responsibilities.

PreK-3 Activity Box Instructions

In the box: White candles; decorating wax; blank card to decorate and send to another member of the k’vutzah; envelope for the
card; postage stamp; sheet with the Shabbat blessings

The task: Decorate candles to be lit on Shabbat in a virtual celebration with class members on Sunday, March 21. Each child then decorates the card to send to another person in the class. The name and address of the student(s) they are to write to can be found in their purple folder.

Be part of the North American La-bri’ut sing-along video!

Entry deadline: March 30

The Jewish Education Center of Cleveland, with the incredible efforts of Jay Rapoport and his musical team, is creating a new La-bri’ut virtual choir video with the voices and faces of children across North America. We need YOUR help! You are invited to record yourself (with an adult’s help) singing along to the La-bri’ut theme song. Due date for your contribution is March 30. The theme song team will edit together their favorite contributions and share the final version in late April.

Full instructions are at: (Note: this is a corrected link. The first link that went out did not work.)

There are links to a practice video, the video you need to sing along with, and a permission form for the JEC to use your video segment.

You know you wanna do it! Start practicing and then record!
