Chabad of NW Metro Denver’s first day of Hebrew school got off to a somber start this past Sunday on the tenth anniversary of 9/11 in Westminster .
To help the children direct their feelings towards something positive the students made 9/11 Tzedakah (charity) boxes giving the kids the message of turning darkness into light by adding acts of goodness and kindness.
This activity is just a sample of the Hebrew school’s method of teaching students lessons in Jewish culture and values through hands-on activities. The school also follows the very popular Aleph Champ program that adopts the color system used in karate–“white belt to “black belt”–to motivate Hebrew reading.
The Hebrew school meets Sunday mornings in Westminster and is still open for registration for kids 4-13 for the coming school year.
No synagogue affiliation or Hebrew knowledge is required to join.
