WTA Students Study Torah Through Acting and Art

Recently, third graders at Westchester Torah Academy finished learning Parashat Vayera, and expressed their learning by using their theatrical and artistic talent.

The students illustrated Lot and his family leaving their home before the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and also focused on Avraham’s discussion with Hashem, when Avraham pleaded with Him to be merciful and forgive the city’s residents.

A group of students creatively improvised Akedat Yitzchak. They prepared the props they needed for the play, and followed the story’s every detail. To illustrate the many verbs used in the pesukim depicting the Akedah, the students chopped wood, prepared the Mizbeach, prepared the donkey and the two boys for the journey, and sculpted a torch and a knife. A student actor read the pesukim from the Chumash, while the other actors improvised their conversation speaking only in Hebrew!
