Shabbat, Melachot, and Challah-Cover Making
This lesson will introduce students to traditional Jewish understandings of work and rest. They will understand that “work” traditionally meant interacting with the environment, and the connection between Melachot and Shabbat. They will also create challah covers and learn about Shabbat symbols like hallah and challah covers. This lesson was prepared by Rachel Aronson as part of the JOFEE Fellowship and was designed for 4th graders.
