Today was Day 1 of summer 2008 and what fun it was! This summer we will be taking a tour through Jewish history as we learn about 20 different Jewish Heroes from throughout the ages. Today we learned about Donna Gratzia who was a great woman who lived in Spain during the time of the Spanish Inquisition. She was very charitable and made sure to use her resources to make sure that there were Jewish schools. From Donna Gratzia we can learn about the Mitzvah of Tzeddakah, charity.
Today we decorate our very own Tzeddakah boxes and took part in an awesome penny hunt! We also played some cool sports including using the parachute and playing catch with velcro "mitts".
We had plenty of time to play with our friends and of course enjoyed a refreshing swim at the JCC!
