We hope you all had a wonderful break, and it is so exciting to be back just in time for Purim!
This week in the 6th and 7th grade Tuesday/Wednesday class, we collectively retold the Purim story, and then thought about all the ways the different characters stood up for something. Following this discussion, we brainstormed and shared personal stories about when we have stood up for other people. We connected our personal stories to the stories of the Purim characters, applying our modern experiences to this aspect of Jewish history.
We hope to see you all tomorrow at Temple Israel for the Purim festivities!
