In class today we switched things up. Rabbi Weill, our guide in teaching Maariv was unable to make it to our class today so we reviewed the service on
our own. We made a bit of a game out of it by allowing the kids to use
instruments and even trying to get them to harmonize some of the
different t’filot. We tried to give the service a bit of a different flavor today and the kids responded positively.

confidence in the prayer and ritual. In addition, we also reviewed some
of the things we knew about Havdalah and the meaning of the different T’filot.
