We had an awesome time reading, discussing and analyzing the first parsha, Bereshit (in the beginning). We talked about how similar we are to Adam and Eve and how hard it would be to not eat from the Tree of Knowledge. We also decided that curiosity is how we learn and it’s what makes us human. We then wrote and performed a pop song, to the tune of “Whistle” by Flo Rida.
Below are the lyrics we composed. Hopefully a video will be posted later.
WHISTLE (JEWISH STYLE)
The world was a big mess
So God did his/her best,
and did not sleep.
So God took 6 days
Created night, day, cows, sheep.
CHORUS: Don’t eat the apple Eve, apple Eve
That would be bad.
But Eve ate the apple
and God was mad.
Don’t eat the apple Eve, apple Eve
God told Eve: Don’t touch the tree
but she was hit by cur-i-os-ity.
But the snake did his trick
and got his wish.
