Rosh Chodesh Club
Select Tuesdays, 4:00-5:30pm (visit Senesh Store for details), $175

The Rosh Chodesh club is an exciting new project which combines Judaic Studies with practical use of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) skills. In each lesson, students will focus on a Jewish tradition or text viewed through a historical, archaeological, anthropological, or artistic lens. We will perform scientific and artistic experiments to explore the practical side of Jewish tradition (ex. Why was purple dye used exclusively for the Temple service? How was it made? Can we make it ourselves to determine how it would have looked?) The course will culminate in a final collaborative project which will put all of these lessons and skills to practical use. 
Instructor: Aliza Donath, 3rd/4th Grade Judaics Teacher
