We are Listening!
We are focusing on listening this year; listening to one another, the world around us, and most importantly, to ourselves. Check out some Big Kid Spirituality (BKS) students worked together to bake challah, a traditional bread made on Shabbat. They listened to the different sounds and smells of the bread, discussing the many different sensory experiences of Shabbat and what they mean to them.
Many classes told the story of Noah's Ark which coincidentally was read during the week that a new climate change report was released. Our students pointed out how living in greed and not listening to one another makes it harder for us to work together in finding a solution and compared our current state of lawlessness to the reality Noah was living in before the flood. Many classes created .gifs to make people listen to our concerns about climate change by grabbing their attention. Below you can see some of the images made by our students in response.
