Matan: How many days 'til we get the Torah.
Miles: Because He was so great!
Maya: Because He wants us to be kind.
Colette: To be great selves.
Emily: Cause He loves all of us people.
Morah Katie: How will the Torah help us to be our best selves?
Matan: It teaches you how to do the mitzvahs.
Rowen: He loves us and wants us to learn the aleph-bet.
Lochlan: The Torah helps us.
Maya: We just learn to be kind.
Ozzie: I just love the Torah. It has the mitzvahs. Helping is a good deed. Giving tzedakah is a good deed.
Morah Katie: Both of those are good deeds. When we do them we are being our best selves.
We decided to write down things we do at The Gan to help us be our best selves.
Miles: Nice game Carson.
Carson: Thanks Miles.
Rowen: You make the letters good Maya.
Maya: Well... I'm trying. I don't really know my Hebrew letters.
Rowen: Yeah but we are learning.
