We celebrated the upcoming holiday of Shavuot (tonight). The children studied the importance of Shavuot when the Israelites received the Torah, our foundational document. Via Zoom, author Sherry Wasserman, and illustrator Ruth Cisse, read their book “I am Standing at Mount Sinai” to the children and it was followed up by a lively Q&A. The day closed with a tasty ice cream sundae party and a screening of an animated version of The Book of Ruth which is read on Shavuot.
