JKHA MS Brings Torah to Life

The JKHA 6th grade girls in Morah Goldstein’s Chumash class brought the Torah to life by experiencing how B’nai Yisrael traveled in the midbar (wilderness). They had the unique opportunity to recreate the camp of B’nai Yisrael in the midbar in order to better understand the machloket (disagreement) of how Bnai Yisrael traveled in the wilderness. One theory is that Bnai Yisrael traveled in a line formation, while the other theory is that they traveled in a square formation. Each student was given a post-it indicating which shevet (tribe) they were part of, and they traveled through the halls of the middle school until they arrived in the dining hall. Once there, the girls set up the camp according to the pesukim that they had learned.
