BPY Begins Parent-Child Learning    

Right before Sukkot, BPY students in grades two through four, together with their parents came to the home of Daniella and David Spier for a wonderful parent-child learning chavruta and shiur led by Rabbi Zucker. This was the first of a series to be held, b’ezrat Hashem, at least once a month throughout the year. Rabbi Zucker welcomed 50 dedicated learners, and distributed a source sheet with some questions to ponder and discuss—all focused on the mitzvot of Chag HaSukkot (and Chag HaPesach). In a ruach-filled session, the children and their parents analyzed two different themes of the mitzvot of Sukkot and Pesach, one theme centered on the idea of miracles, and one theme centered on the world of nature—both of which Hashem created. After the chavruta learning, the children shared aloud what they learned with their parents, and Rabbi Zucker tied the themes together, telling a story that brought the lesson home. And all the while, students and parents enjoyed a delicious pizza, pasta and sushi dinner graciously provided by the Spiers. As they left, children and adults said that they loved the food for thought (and the food on their plates), and that they could not wait for our next parent-child learning. What a beautiful way to prepare for Sukkot, and to start the year!
