On January 7, 2020, our 4th - 7th grade Hebrew School students had the opportunity to learn how to create a prayer. After learning the parts of a blessing from the siddur, each student had a hand in creating a small part of a unique prayer just for them. Their words remind us of what is important and how blessed we are to worship with our Temple Israel kehilah kedoshah (holy community).
BLESSED ARE YOU ADONAI,
who gives birth to the new generation and the universe,
who creates the sun, the moon, and the Torah,
who creates our past and writes our future,
who gives us our family and friends,
who gives us the things we celebrate,
and who gives us the chance to do good and correct the bad.
