Rabbi Eiduson Message - February 2016

At Congregation B'nai Shalom we believe that you, our parents, are an essential part of your child's Jewish education. This is our sixth year using the Mitkadem Hebrew curriculum and while we are very pleased with our overall results, in order for us to be truly successful we need your help. With the Mitkadem program, I believe that it is easy to include parents both as learners and teachers during the weekdays between our school sessions. We need you to help your child practice reading the prayers they are learning with us on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. You can do this even if you do not read Hebrew with the help of the Behrman House's Mitkadem Website for reading practice. You may find the website at: http://www.behrmanhouse.com/mitkadem-audio. Or you may use our temple website and hear a more familiar voice. http://www.cbnaishalom.org/learning/bmAudio.php. I hope you will access this website with your child today and encourage him/her to practice Hebrew prayer reading at least twice weekly for ten minutes at each session. In this way, student reading fluency will improve and our students will feel a greater sense of accomplishment as they learn the Hebrew language.
