Less than ONE week until the next holiday!
We have been counting down to Shavuot and preparing a special craft for this special day.
Hashem gave the Jewish people a present: The Torah!
We know it is full of: Mitzvahs and Stories!
We made our own Torah's. We began creating beautiful covers.
Tori: It tells us to do kind things.
Sally: What is a mitzvah?
Abigail: To make happy people.
Aaron: Helping people.
Scout: Helping sick people.
Gracie: Sharing toys with people who don't have toys.
Josiah: Celebrating the holidays.
Efraim: From the mountain.
Billybobjoe: So I will go to a mountain and get a Torah.
Josiah: Hashem gave the Torah on a mountain!
Sally: Hashem gave it to Moshe on what kind of mountain?
Dena: Mt. Sinai
Sally: Why Mt. Sinai? Is it the tallest? or the snowiest? or the prettiest?
Gracie: It was humblely.
Sally: What does humble mean?
Billybobjoe: I KNOW I KNOW BECAUSE I!!!! AM THE SMARTEST PUPPET. Humble is like me.
Efraim: Trying, just OK.
Josiah: Being respectful.
Sally: So being humble means not bragging?
Dena: Or fighting.
Billybobjoe: You are telling us that Hashem gave you The Torah on a mountain that was humble and the Torah is full of good things to help us behave well?
Sally: No wonder it is such a special present!
