This week we learned that without the roots, a tree cannot stand. So too, us Jews need Torah and Mitzvos (the roots) in order survive.
When we made various comparisons to trees one of the girls response was," I have curly hair like a tree". We made a peek-a-boo tree displaying all wonderful ways the trees contribute to our lives. We learned about the seven special fruits that Israel is blessed with (Shivat Haminim), and made a nice fruit basket by weaving construction paper in and out and cutting out fruits that we had colored.
On Tu B’Shvat itself, we made a fruit Kebab and tasted some of the Shivat Haminim. We also followed the age-old custom to eat a new fruit on Tu B’shvat, by tasting a new fruit and saying the special bracha Bracha “ Shehechiyanu”.
We had a wonderful Music & Movement class. I can't wait fo rnext week!!!
