Vayeira: Hospitality (and links)

You have probably been reading or following along with the destruction from Superstorm Sandy. I hope everyone is safe and warm. I just read about our shul (synagogue) bussing people down from NY and NJ to spend Shabbat as guests with heat and power. What an amazing mitzva, and so appropriate for this week! This […]


Scratch off paper stars 2

Lech Lecha stars (parsha project)

And He took him outside, and He said, “Please look heavenward and count the stars, if you are able to count them.” And He said to him, “So will be your seed.” This is part of this week’s parsha, Lech Lecha (the quote is from Genesis / Beresheit 15:5). So we made scratch-off paper and […]


A parshat Noach science project 5

This week is full of rainbow things – (see the rest of the parsha ideas for Noach here.) We decided to try a science project in addition to rainbow cupcakes, coloring pages, a crayon, and more. I found the idea as well as the science behind it here. It’s a project called a rainbow in […]

V’Zot HaBerachah: Resources and ideas

This is a little different piece of Torah – it’s the section we read to finish the Torah before we start again! V’zot HaBerachah (V’zos Habracha) tells of the blessings that Moshe gave to the shevatim (twelve tribes of Israel) before his death. It remembers Jacob’s blessings to his twelve sons and gives each tribe its strength and place […]


Haazinu: Resources and ideas

The biggest piece of this week’s parsha is the 70-line song delivered by Moshe on his last day. He says to remember Judaism throughout the generations, and ask elders how Hashem chose us and made us his own. Moshe warns against getting fat (with excesses) and spurning Hashem. In the end, Hashem will avenge our mistreatement […]


Vayelech: Ideas and Resources

Moshe is 120 years old, and this is the last day of his life. He writes a Torah scroll and  puts Yehoshua (Joshua) in charge. We are told to gather every 7 years to hear the Torah. And we hear that the Torah will not be forgotten. Links: Here are the Aish, Torah.org, and Chabad pages on Vayelech. Here are […]


Nitzivim: Ideas and Resources 2

This week’s parsha tells us about Moshe’s last day. He reminds the Jewish people of their covenant with Hashem, and because they weren’t the ones who made it (their parents did!), they reaffirm their acceptance and make a new covenant. We get a promise to return to Eretz Yisrael, no matter how bad things get, […]
