Morah Miranda Wilgus

 

Today in class we worked on:
9/18 – Today we looked at the ‘Ladder of Tzedakah’ and discussed the different levels of giving as described by Rabbi Maimonides. Students had an opportunity to place the different levels of tzedakah into the Rambam’s  categories, and discussed why those were the levels he determined.
We also spent some time defining and translating Hebrew terms.
Homework to be completed by next class:
9/18 – Practice reading the first dialogue section of Chapter one in our Hebrew book and work on exercises on page 6.

 
 

Today in class we worked on:
9/11 – Today was a great first class. We discussed the concept of Tzedakah-the root of which it tzedek – Justice. We discussed the concept of charity as justice, and the idea of making the world a just and righteous place.
We also played a review game of Hebrew letters and words prior to jumping into our new Hebrew book.
Homework to be completed by next class:
9/11 – Read Hebrew aloud at least 15 minutes a day and practice the first dialogue of Chapter 1 in our Hebrew book.
Also think if ideas for our tzedaka project for this year.
