Jewlicious Learners in Action

“Hershel and the Hannukah Goblins”

Congregation P’nai Tikvah added to its Hanukkah joy by seeing Shabbat off with havdalah and dinner, followed by an outstanding Readers’ Theatre presentation of “Hershel and the Hannukah Goblins” by our “Jewlicious Learners.” The play was adapted by Mason DeLee, a pre-Bar Mitzvah student, who also played the part of one of the narrators. His brother, Meyer, played the one. The part of Hershel of Ostropol was played by David Piekarsky. The goblins were interpreted by Daniel Piekarsky, Matias Tarquino (who also played the part of the village rabbi), Maple DeLee, and Aaron Brown. Sophia Brown was the village woman who brought us into the story.

Learning and Observance

L’Dor V’Dor –  Shema Video


In Shlomo Riskin’s article in the New York Jewish Week, August 1, 2018, “Teach Your Children Well”, he quotes Deuteronomy 11:19 “You shall teach them with your children, to speak with them, when you sit in your home, when you walk on the way, when you lie down, and when you arise.” This is where, as he says, “the necessity of conveying the faith foundation to the next generation.” Inspiring a passion for the Jewish faith and traditions as a parent is a hefty burden, yet generations of Jewish continuity lay testament to results of this parental task. L’Dor V’Dor, from generation to generation, we teach our children lovingly and as Riskin says, “to personally claim ownership of the Torah.”

The Shema is usually the first prayer we teach our children. Our congregation is blessed with and encourages exposure and influence to Torah and this small video shows how a small pre-Jewlicious Learner has sunk her teeth into learning the Shema.
