Judaic Studies



Bamidbar-The Jewish people are now in the midbar .

In this week’s parsha we learn howmuch Hashem loves each and every Jew , that he keeps on counting them/us.

Men alone,ages 20-60 numbered 603,550! That is extremely incredible especially considering that there were also males ages 0-20 years and 60 and above, and as many females. This number 2as accumulated  in only 210 years after a humble beginning of only 70 individuals who originally entered Egypt.

We learned about the encampment in the desert/wilderness and the order of travel.

Each camp had their own unique flag with colors and animals depicted on it. I heard from my son who heard from his Rebbie-Rabbi that the flag was there to remind all of them of their unique talents. We should all recognize our own talents and use them effectively to live a life of a proper Jew serving Hashem.


Thank you to Jacob Michaelov for creating an exciting game for all of us with which to review the Parasha

This week was all about our end-of-year iReady tests! Everyone did great!

In ELA, we finished our novel study of Sadako and a thousand paper cranes! Students did a wonderful job in our classroom discussion and analysis of this novel. We also learned to fold our own paper cranes!

We worked on our writing skills, and wrote creative stories featuring our class pet, Curly. In Science, we continued our unit on the ocean ecosystem. In math, we continued our chapter on ratios, and in social studies, we are wrapping our chapter on the American Revolution.
