Climbing “Mt. Sinai” with Shabbat Shalom Sunday School

With their newly designed walking sticks children are pretending to climb Mt Sinai.

After enjoying a nosh of bagels and cream cheese, we were fortified for Mishpacha/Family Sunday this week at school, where we created our own walking sticks for climbing Mt.Sinai in preparation for Shavuot.  Each of our sticks was delicately decorated with various, colorful strips of duct tape.

After learning that it was a relatively small mountain, so as to be accessible to all, and to know that G-d was never too far away from us, we then used our sticks to journey to the top of the mountain.  There, at the top, we were created a moment of silence, just as it was those many, many years ago, when tradition teaches that at that moment the entire world was deeply quiet.  Standing silently, we each received the Torah, and then passed it to each other, finishing with a group shma.

Shavuot, here we come!
