We wrote a quick note on facebook to some friends in Israel to find out how it feels to have snow! We are also interested in knowing if Tu B’Shevat will be different because of the snow.
Here are more thoughts about what our students what to know:
Eve wants to know if there is enough snow for a snowman. Adam wants to know if there is enough snow for a snowball fight. Mac wants to know if there is enough snow to make a snow fortress. Sammy wants to know how many feet deep the snow is. Eli wants to know if there is enough snow to make a giant snowball and then roll it at somebody. Harry wants to know if there is enough snow to make an igloo. Lizzie wants to know if the snow is deep enough to make a snowman. Hannah wants to know if there is enough snow to make a model of a peguin. Sabrina wants to know if you know how to make a snowman. Sara wants to know if there are buds on the trees in the snow. Zoe wants to know if you know when the snow is going to stop. Lulu wants to know if there is enough snow to make a deep snow angel.
We are going to send these questions to Morah Lauren’s facebook friends who she knows from 1984 when she was a student at Hebrew University!
