Rosh Chodesh Nisan

on April 3, 2014

We celebrated Rosh Chodesh Nisan today with our friends from the EC4 classroom. As usual, we discussed the new month, its name, and anything important that happens on the Jewish calendar with that month. When the question was asked what is special during Nisan, the answer was a resounding PASSOVER!! We then discussed the hebrew name of Pesach and briefly discussed the Passover story that we have all been working so hard on learning over these past few weeks. We then read the story “Dayenu, or How Uncle Murray Saved the Seder”. We learned that Dayenu in hebrew means “enough” and when we sing the song Dayenu at the end of our seder it is because we are thanking God for our freedom, shabbat, the torah, and the miracles he performed to get us out of Egypt when we were slaves. The story taught us about getting ready for the seder, and just when you think you’ve done enough to prepare for Pesach, there is usually at least one more thing you can do to make your seder even more special. After the story we gathered around the SmartBoard to watch and listen to a fun, modern-day version of Dayenu, sang to the tune of recent pop radio hits!
