I was so excited by the email I received yesterday announcing a new ebook! My husband and I have been wondering how we can better fill Shabbat with appropriate activities that help our children to focus on their Creator. We have a structured time of studying the Torah portion, but after that we often don’t have anything else planned. Are you in a similar situation?
Evonne Mandella of Wholesome Learning has put together her love of the Hebrew language and Scripture, and her enthusiastic fun writing style in this Shabbat School curriculum. It is designed to give a structured and fun time for children meeting together in a Messianic congregation or families at home on Shabbat. Each week, you will study a chapter from Proverbs and do some fun activities to back up the lesson. On feast days, simply set aside the Proverbs study, and do one of the feast studies found in the back of the book. There is also a Hebrew word to learn each week with flashcards that can be hung on the wall. Many of the feast studies also include snack ideas.
To give you an example from one of the lessons, let’s take a look at Proverbs ch. 2. After reading the chapter together, you will be learning about secret treasure. You will learn the Hebrew word for treasure, have a treasure hunt and even draw treasure maps! What a fun way to add some more depth to your Shabbat and learn some Hebrew along the way! The lessons are simple, written out and fun.
To give you a little more detail about this ebook, here is a description from the author.
