Congregational School — בית הספר

  • The kindergarten to third grade class learned about mezuzot after learning to sing the sh’ma. They looked at a real scroll, which has the sh’ma and a few other paragraphs, including v’ahavta. Everyone copied or traced the sh’ma onto their own “scrolls” and decorated the plastic bottles.

From Mezuzot
שְׁמַע יִשְׂרָאֵל יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵינוּ יְהוָה אֶחָד
Listen, Israel. Adonai is our God. Adonai is one.
