Grade 2 Family Education: The Power of Blessings

Chadar Ochel
The Morning Blessings - Nissim B'chol Yom, sometimes referred to as "The Miracles of the Day" provide an opportunity for us as Jews to reflect on and express gratitude daily for the many gifts that are present in our lives.

Please join us as we explore the role of BLESSINGS in our lives as we consider what it is like to receive a blessing, say a blessing, give a blessing, write a blessing and be a blessing to others

You can look forward to...
  • listening to your child chant the Morning Blessings from the siddur,
  • working with your child to write a blessing for your family in the style and spirit of the Birkat Kohanim - the Priestly Blessing and bringing home your child’s Blessing Book,
  • and having him/her share his/her personal creative interpretations for each of these Morning Blessings
Get Ready To Be Inspired!

p.s. Due to the content of this family program where every child is creating a personal family blessing, we hope that every child will have a family member who can attend. Please RSVP to your child’s teacher if you are unable to attend. *Also we ask that younger siblings not attend the program to ensure that parents and their children have the most meaningful engaging learning experience together.
