Rabbi Gavi Ruit, 4th Grade Teacher

Our 4th graders have spent this year learning about how we mark time as sacred in Judaism.  Before we began sheltering in place, our class learned about many of our holidays (Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Purim, and Shabbat) and life cycle events (Brit Milah/Baby Naming, Conversion, Consecration, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Confirmation, and Weddings) with a special emphasis on how we make these moments special and holy.  

To help your children mark this unusual time in a meaningful way, I invite your children to complete the attached Covid-19 Time Capsule.  It will give them the opportunity to be artistic, express their feelings, and to connect with others.  It will also give them a tangible marker for this unusual experience that they can keep for the future.  Please also consider sending a copy to Rachel and Rabbi Mack to story at TBE (once we are allowed back there) so that we can "unearth" them in the students' Bar/Bat Mitzvah year.

Stay safe and healty!

Rabbi Gavi Ruit
