Hay Shabbat school students were shocked when the Tanach walked into our room. [In reality they were parent volunteers who ‘became’ the Torah, N’vi-im (Prophets) and K’tuvim (Writings)]
Each part of the Tanach was explored @ a station, in a small parent-led group. Students found selections in the Tanach – and used them as springboards for discussion. They shared favorite figures in the Torah, did a puzzle on the Prophets and found that many of the melodies we sing in services are actually from K’tuvim (Writings).
Our prophet even dressed-the-part!
Check out the siddur (prayerbook) the next time you’re in synagogue. (The readings are often referenced.) How many of our readings can you find from Psalms? How many from Lamentations?
