Maccabiah Games

Our incredible Knesset members, and devoted faculty Maccabiah Committee, have been working tirelessly to plan a fun, engaging, family virtual Maccabiah Games day!

The schedule for the day will look as follows:

9:00-9:30 AM- Opening Ceremonies
9:30-10:00 AM- Team Meetings
10:00-10:30 AM- Snack
10:30-12:00 PM- GooseChase Missions
12:00-1:00 PM- Lunch
1:00-2:00 PM- GooseChase Missions
2:00-3:00 PM- Closing Ceremonies
As you can see, there are two time periods for GooseChase Missions. GooseChase is a digital scavenger hunt app, where missions are listed and participants are challenged to complete them by uploading video, image or text responses. We want this to be a family event, where parents & siblings can all participate in the fun GooseChase missions together during the GooseChase times. However, we understand this may not be possible for all, and students can still participate on their own, or with their siblings. Please let us know if your child needs to be paired up with a teacher. We recommend you download the app ahead of time – you can create an account or play as a guest.
Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $15, 000, which will be matched this year by a generous donor! You can make donations by visiting this link: http://bit.ly/maccabiah2020, and are encouraged to share it with family and friends as well.
Each team’s Google Meet links and GooseChase game codes will all be shared closer to the date. Students are encouraged to wear their team colour on Friday June 5.
It is sure to be an amazing day!

פּירות (Fruit)

Our new vocabulary unit is all about fruit – פּירות (perot)

On Shavuot, people brought the first fruits of the field  בּיכורים (bikkurim) to the temple to offer thanks to G-d.

Please watch and listen to the following slideshow to learn the names of the fruits in Hebrew. Then go to Flipgrid and in Hebrew…tell me your favourite fruit:

…הַפְּרִי הָאָהוּב עָלַי הוּא
