Several Firsts

This week we had several firsts in Kitah Bet:

We learned all about gematria – the numerical value of the Hebrew letters. The children enjoyed figuring out the value of their names and last names. They realized that having a long name doesn’t guarantee a higher value. The real reason why we learned about gematria is because it helps us find our way around the Chumash!

That was another one of our firsts this week: we got to look up different verses in the Chumash and earned our very first kartisei Torah of the year!

We read a story with riddles about stories that happened in the virtual Kitah Alef and then enjoyed looking through our old albums.

Shabbat Shalom!
