Dear 6th Grade Families,
When I scheduled our final extra lesson for tomorrow, I had not realized the TBI Cheesecake Project would conflict. There will be no lesson tomorrow at 4:15 pm, instead, I encourage all of you to stop by TBI to pick up your free cheesecake and say farewell to your TBI teachers. I will be at TBI (at a safe social distance) waving to you. Pick up is available from 3:00-6:00 pm. Please observe all required protocols. If you have not already done so, please register on Shulcloud for this event: https://templebethisraelskokie.shulcloud.com/event/TheCheeseCakeProject
We will observe the festival of Shavuot this Thursday, May 28 with a study session, and Friday, May 29 with Shavuot morning services with Yizkor at 10:30 am.
If your student has any questions about their B’nai Mitzvah Torah or Haftarah portion, or they would like additional help with the blessings, or anything else we have covered during this year, please don’t hesitate to reach out, I am always happy to help!
It has been such a pleasure working with all of your students this year. I could not be prouder of what we have accomplished together!
HEBREW AT HOME PRACTICE
I want to encourage all our students to continue practicing Hebrew at home. Trope and the Blessings for Haftarah and Torah can be found on our blog: https://marlaaviva.edublogs.org/trope/. Prayer practice: https://marlaaviva.edublogs.org/prayer/. For modern Hebrew language, I highly recommend the free app, Duolingo: https://www.duolingo.com/course/he/en/Learn-Hebrew as well as utilizing the apps, and website resources on the blog for practicing vocabulary and working on basic skills.
Also, take advantage of all the online offerings available at TBI, including Shabbat services with myself and Rabbi Weinberg on Fridays at 6:05 and Saturdays at 10:30, as well as adult learning. Check our the TBI website or Facebook page for all our online classes and events.
Feel free to email me anytime with questions, email@example.com.
