Grade 4 Students Embody Ushpizin Characters and Explore Sefirot for Sukkot
October 23, 2023 by
In the days surrounding Sukkot, elementary students gleefully quizzed each other on biblical characters and offered brachot (blessings) in the name of their chosen characters. Grade four students played key roles in exploring the chag, having been prepared through work with their Judaics teacher G’veret Malkiel.
G’veret Malkiel says “The tradition of having Ushpizin (visitors) to our Sukkot is a great opportunity for students to connect to the biblical characters, and to connect their own qualities and values to the lives of these figures.”
