Welcome back everyone.

I hope you all had a wonderful Passover break.

Now that pesach is over we are counting the days until Shavuot. This is what your listening comprehension is about for Monday and Tuesday. I recommend to listen to, or read (or both) the questions prior to the part itself. Then listen a number of times before you attempt to answer…

Song for the 10 Plagues and what to bring for the Model Seder

Hi everyone,

Grade 1 enjoyed so much learning the motions for Kadesh Urchatz, a few of them asked if they can teach the motions for the 10 plagues. Of course I said yes, and asked if they want to come teach the Grdae 4s. They proudly said yes and on Friday came to teach Kitah Dalet the motions. Reciprocation is so wonderful… 🙂

#We Learn Better Together 


…and here is a video of them demonstrating it so we can all practice it at home.


P.S. Homework this week is to practice your parts and the songs for the Model Seder at Hillel Lodge

In Israel anyway… – אביב הגיע פסח בא

This year Kitah Dalet will be running a Model Seder at Hillel Lodge, for the residents from our ‘Vehadartah Pnei Zaken’ program, as well as other residents who wish to join us.

The Seder will take place Monday, April 15th at 2:15pm.  Please let me know by Monday, April 1st (tomorrow is even better), if your child will be away, as each child will receive a part to be in charge of and present during the Seder. 

On top of reading the part, this project will involve giving some explanation of meaning and background as to why it is part of the Haggadah. 

We went through the songs today and as always, I enjoyed listening to their beautiful singing.

Kitah Dalet, please continue practicing The Passover songs at home.
