Over the last few weeks we have been learning about Judaism. Today we recapped our understanding of what Shabbat is and how and why it is celebrated. We recreated some aspects of Shabbat by making Challah bread and drinking grape juice. The children worked in groups to follow the recipe, remembering from our previous instruction writing the importance of following the recipe in order. The children demonstrated great team work and patience along with fantastic kneading skills! Unfortunately, we couldn't replicate the no work aspect! I still expected the children to carry on with their learning, unlike a typical Shabbat.
Although not everyone liked the bread and grape juice, everybody tried it.
