WEEKLY TORAH FOR  KIDS:  Parshat Behar-Bechukotai

Care to Win
By Mendy Loewenthal

“You must pass the ball to each other,” Mr. Gibson said. “If you want your team to win, you all need to work together, if you just try to run down with the ball and play your own game then your team will lose.”

Ben’s team was in the middle of the first game of the interschool competition and they had a new coach. They all stood huddled around him at halftime, listening to his words of wisdom and inspiration intended to keep them going through the second half and carry them through to a win.

“It doesn’t sound as if he cares whether we win or lose,” Ben said to David as they jogged out to the field. “All he says is, ‘if you do this you will win, if you do that you will lose.’ It’s all ‘if you,’ ‘if you.'”

“Instead of telling us that we will lose, it would be nice if he would encourage us…””Yeah,” David said. “Instead of telling us that we will lose, it would be nice if he would encourage us to play well in a positive way.”

“It’s like this week’s Torah reading,” Ben said. “The reading starts with the words ‘If you follow My laws.’ We had a long discussion in class about the word ‘if.’ Does it mean ‘if,’ or does it mean ‘please'”?

“What’s the difference?” David asked as they waited for the whistle to blow.

“Well, this little word,” Ben explained, “changes the whole meaning of the verse. It could make G‑d sound as if He doesn’t really care whether we win or lose, and all He is saying is ‘if you keep the mitzvot you will be blessed.’ Or, it could be a passionate plea from G‑d that we should keep the mitzvot and learn Torah, and consequently we will be blessed.”

“So,” David said, “what did you decide, does G‑d care if we do the mitzvot?”

“The Talmud says,” Ben explained “that G‑d is pleading with us to do the mitzvot. G‑d wants us to live a life filled with positive things. He wants us to study Torah and do the mitzvot, such as being kind to each other and kind to our parents, to our brothers and sisters and being good to a lonely person, and like Shabbat and kosher and so on.”

“Wow! Pleading with us! That’s amazing,” said David.

“Yeah,” said Ben. “But most importantly He wants us to win the game!”

“Remember to pass…!” David yelled as he ran for the ball…

Hey kids!
We’re so lucky—the Jewish calendar is filled with holidays, and the next one, Shavuot, is fast approaching. On Shavuot we celebrate the giving of theTorah on Mount Sinai, when the children played a very important role!When G-d gave the Torah to the Jewish people, the Jewish children were the guarantors! G-d knew that He could count on the Jewish boys and girls to make sure the Jewish people would love the Torah, learn it, and do its holy mitzvahs.

Every year we celebrate this special day, by going to the synagogue and hearing the Ten Commandments being read. On Wednesday, May 24, 2015, make sure to go to your local synagogue and hear the Ten Commandments.

On Shavuot, it’s also traditional to eat dairy and decorate the house withflowers and greenery.

We’ve got some great videos, crafts, recipes and stories to help you get ready for the holiday. Enjoy!

Have a great week,

Your friends at JewishKids.org

PS. Stay tuned for the opportunity to do the Shavuot mitzvahs and win great prizes in the upcoming Shavuot mission.

WEEKLY TORAH FOR  KIDS:  Parshat Emor

Iyar 17, 5775 · May 6, 2015
Living with the Parshah: To Be a Cohen

Maya strapped on her seatbelt as her mother started the engine and they waited for her father to get into the car. It was Sunday afternoon and they were about to go to visit their cousins, who lived just outside the city.

Soon they were on their way. The sun was shining and it was a beautiful day. Maya let the air rush through her hair as the car sped down the highway. She had been looking forward to this as her cousins had only recently moved to England. It would be the first time that Maya would be visiting them in their new home.

Soon they were out of the city, off the highway, driving along a beautiful winding country road. “Ah, the scenery is so pretty!” exclaimed Maya. “And the air is so fresh,” she added, opening her window wide and inhaling deeply.

“Yes,” agreed her mother from the driving seat, “we will be coming out here on holiday in the summer, to get some more of this fantastic air.” She too was a fan of country air and country landscape.

The car, driven by Maya’s mother, was moving down a delightful narrow lane, sporadically overhung with trees. Suddenly Maya’s father, sitting in the passenger seat at the front and looking at a map, sat up straight. “Hey! I’m sorry!” he called out.

“What’s the matter?” asked his wife.

“We have to turn off this road. Quick, stop the car!”

Maya’s mother smoothly brought the car to a halt. “What”s the problem?” asked Maya, now feeling annoyed. She thought to herself: Parents! They always have some kind of problem! Sitting in the back seat, she snorted audibly.

“I”m sorry,” said her father from the front, “but we cannot go along this route. We will have to go back and find another road.”

“Why?” asked Maya, “what is wrong with this lovely road? Mummy was just saying how beautiful it is here.”

Her mother peered at the map which Maya’s father was showing her. “Oh, a cemetery!” she said. “Sorry, I didn’t realize. It’s so good that you noticed it,” she said to Maya’s father as she began turning the car round, doing a neat three-point turn.

“The problem is,” she said, glancing back at Maya, “that on this road we will soon pass a cemetery. The map shows it very clearly.”

“What’s the deal with the cemetery? Why shouldn’t we go near it?” asked Maya, her annoyance gone and her interest sparked.

“We are a family of kohanim,” her mother replied. “That means we have special rules. Further along this road there are trees hanging over the road and creating a kind of canopy over the graves and us. Since Daddy is a kohen that is not allowed.”

“Oh, I remember,” said Maya. “In fact it’s in the sedra this week. But it doesn’t apply to a girl, does it, Mummy?”

“No, you are quite right. But it does apply to Daddy, and to your brother Chaim, if he would be here instead of being on holiday in Israel.”

“It’s good to remember about being a kohen,” said Maya. “Even out here in the country, the fact that you are a kohen matters. And when Moshiach comes, and there is a beautiful Temple again in Jerusalem, then the fact that you and Chaim are kohanimand can serve in the Temple will be fantastic.”

Hey kids!

Today we celebrate Pesach Sheni—a “second Passover.”

A year after the Jews left Egypt, G-d instructed them to bring the Passover offering and eat it together with matzah and bitter herbs, as they had done the year before. There were some people who had become ritually impure and weren’t able to participate, but they didn’t want to miss out!

They asked, “Why should we miss out? We want to do this mitzvah, too!”

So G-d created a second opportunity for them. Anyone who was unable to bring the Passover offering on time, had a second chance one month later on the 14th day of the Jewish month of Iyar.

It’s customary to mark this day by eating matzah, but unlike on Passover, we don’t need to stay away from chametz. We’ve got some fun ideas for you to do with your Pesach Sheni matzah today.

This second Passover is about more than just matzah. It’s about missed opportunities and second chances. Pesach Sheni shows us that it’s never too late to do a mitzvah.

Living with the Parsha: Love of One’s Fellow

“Isn’t that girl in your class?” the twins’ mother asked her daughters. “Why don’t you go and say hello to her while I pay?”

The twins were in Sainsbury’s, shopping with their mother, when whom should they meet but Galit Rose. Debbi and Leah looked at each other.

“Well, she is in our class, but we’re not really friends with her. Nobody likes her. And she’s always really rude to everyone,” Debbi explained.

“Oh wow, what a wonderful chance you two have to do a really good deed, Mitzvah, and you’re just missing out on it. What a shame!” their mother said.

“What Mitzva? Leah asked.

“The Mitzva of “Love your fellow as yourself.” It’s actually one of the commandments given in this week’s Parsha”.

“Oh Mom!” Debbi groaned. “It can’t apply to people like Galit. She’s just impossible to like. Believe me, Leah and I have tried to be friends, but she won’t even let you be nice to her.”

“That’s just the point. It’s not very difficult to like nice people. The challenge of this mitzva is to apply it even to difficult people. The commandment doesn’t exclude anyone – obviously we have to love everybody, whatever their personality.”

The twins’ mother looked at her daughters’ faces. She could see that it was not going to be so easy!

“Someone like Galit is a big challenge,” she continued. “But that’s what life is all about – facing challenges! And I think once she’d see that you really want to be friends with her, she’d open up.”

The girls looked at each other again. “Well, maybe we could try,” Leah admitted. “It can’t really hurt, I suppose…”

A few days later the family was at supper. “Mom,” asked Debbi, “could someone come and do homework with us after school tomorrow and stay for supper?”

“That shouldn’t be a problem. Who’s coming?”

“Can you guess?”

“Could it be Galit?”

“Yes, you were right, Mom. She’s become really friendly – and not just to us, to others as well. And she’s really funny and knows how to draw hilarious pictures of people. Thank you for your advice.”

The twins’ mother smiled gently.

Spring is here! Celebrate with this deliciously refreshing strawberry-banana smoothie. And while we’re talking about fruit, Israel is known for its special fruits. Do you know what they are? Listen to this song, and you’ll learn their Hebrew and English names.Have you been counting the Omer? When the Jews left Egypt after hundreds of years of slavery and deprivation, they needed time to prepare spiritually for the giving of the Torah. In great excitement they used each day to transform themselves, until seven weeks later they gathered at Mount Sinai ready to receive the Torah.The Torah tells us to count the days and weeks from Passover until Shavuot. We use this time to think about our strengths and weaknesses, and improve our negative character traits. None of us are perfect; we all have things we wish we could improve. Use this time to take small steps towards becoming your ideal “you.”

And don’t forget to check out our featured links for lots of entertainment and excitement!

WEEKLY TORAH FOR  KIDS:  Parshat Tazria-Metzora

Iyar 3, 5775 · April 22, 2015
The New Arrival

Rafi was in the midst of a wonderful dream, involving peppermints and chocolate, when he was awakened by his brother Yoni shaking him. “Wake up, Rafi,” he was saying urgently, “Daddy and Mummy are both not here, and Mrs. Samuel from next door is sleeping downstairs, and it’s only 6.30 in the morning!”

This certainly sounded very unusual and Rafi got out of bed. As the boys crept down the stairs they heard a noise at the door, and their father came into the house, looking tired but happy.

“Mazel Tov, Rafi and Yoni!” he said with a big smile. “You have a new little sister!”

Yoni was the first to react. “Can we see her? Now? Oh, I can’t wait to tell all my friends!”

“Me too! What are we going to call her?” Rafi added excitedly.

Their father told them that they would go to visit their mother and the new baby after school, and that the baby would receive her name at the Torah reading on Shabbat morning. Rafi was so excited he could hardly sit still that whole day. In fact this was not so unusual, there was always a reason not to sit still, but this time it was his baby sister.

When his Hebrew teacher, Mr. Waldman, came in Rafi told him that his mother had just had a baby.

Mr. Waldman said “That’s wonderful, Rafi, and I think you will pay special attention to my lesson today since I was planning to teach you the Parshah Tazria-Metzora, which, at the very beginning, tells us about what happens when a Jewish child is born. In the time of the Temple, when somebody had a baby, the mother would bring a special offering to the Temple in Jerusalem to say thank you for this marvelous gift of a child which G-d has given her.” Later on that afternoon, Rafi and Yoni were sitting atop their mother’s bed in the hospital, admiring the tiny bundle of pink cheeks, blue eyes, and what seemed to be a huge amount of dark hair for so small a person. “Mummy, guess what!” Rafi exclaimed. “My teacher told me that if we were living in the time of the Temple, you would bring an offering to G-d to thank Him for giving you a baby.” His mother smiled at him. “Well, until the Temple is rebuilt, which will please G-d be very soon, we can thank G-d in other ways for this beautiful little baby.” Their father said “I know, we can give some money to charity in honor of our new little girl. How about that?” “That’s an excellent idea,” Rafi said approvingly. “And I can give something from my pocket money too!”.

Nissan 30, 5775 · April 19, 2015
Hey kids!

Spring is here! Celebrate with this deliciously refreshing strawberry-banana smoothie. And while we’re talking about fruit, Israel is known for its special fruits. Do you know what they are? Listen to this song, and you’ll learn their Hebrew and English names.Have you been counting the Omer? When the Jews left Egypt after hundreds of years of slavery and deprivation, they needed time to prepare spiritually for the giving of the Torah. In great excitement they used each day to transform themselves, until seven weeks later they gathered at Mount Sinai ready to receive the Torah.

The Torah tells us to count the days and weeks from Passover until Shavuot. We use this time to think about our strengths and weaknesses, and improve our negative character traits. None of us are perfect; we all have things we wish we could improve. Use this time to take small steps towards becoming your ideal “you.”

And don’t forget to check out our featured links for lots of entertainment and excitement!

Have a great week!

WEEKLY TORAH FOR  KIDS:  Parshat Shemini

Nissan 26, 5775 · April 15, 2015
Mobile Boxes
By Mendy Loewenthal

“Where is my mobile phone?” Ben thought. It was early on a sunny Wednesday morning. Ben was feverishly trying to get his stuff together so he could go off to school with his friend Danny, but he just couldn’t find his mobile phone. Not that he was allowed to take it to school. He just wanted to know that it was safe.

“Ah here you are,” he said excitedly, he had left it plugged in behind the couch. He put it safely in a drawer in his room.

“It still needs to get charged every so often, just like my Dad””You see,” Ben said to Danny as they started off towards school, “the mobile phone lasts a long time but it still needs to get charged every so often, just like my Dad.”

“How is your mobile phone like your Dad?” Danny asked.

“Well,” Ben said, “my Dad puts on tefillin every morning; they are these black leather boxes that have parchment scrolls inside them. On the scrolls a scribe writes theShema, the Hebrew prayer that declares the unity of G‑d and speaks about how much we love Him, along with a few more passages from the Torah.”

“Hmm,” Danny said. “When we are bar mitzvah we will also wear tefillin. But I cannot see what they have to do with a mobile phone.”

“My Dad says that although he only wears them for the morning prayers, it’s as if he’s wearing them the whole time” Ben said. “It’s like the phone—you plug it in once a day and then it stays charged for the whole day.”

“Interesting,” Danny said. “I wonder what it feels like to be charged up by tefillin all day. We’ll find out when we’re bar mitzvah!”

Just then the boys got to school. Their first lesson was on the Torah reading of the week, Shemini.

“What does Shemini mean?” asked their teacher, Mr. Benson. Some boys in the class answered together: “Eighth.”

Danny and Ben both put up their hands. All the other boys just looked puzzled”That’s right! The Sanctuary, the Mishkan, had been put up by Moses every day for seven days, and then taken down. That was in last week’s reading. This week’s reading tells how it was put up on the eighth day, and it stayed up. But even concerning the earlier seven days, it is interesting that each time it was put up, it caused a connection with G‑d. And then it was taken down, but the connection was still there.”

Mr. Benson looked round the class. Everyone was focused on him, for once. “Does that remind you of anything?” he asked.

Danny and Ben both put up their hands. All the other boys just looked puzzled. Mr. Benson looked from Danny to Ben and back. Which one should he ask? “You both seem very keen,” he said. “You can answer together.”

With one voice they answered. “Tefillin!” said Danny. “Mobile phones!” said Ben.

Hey kids!

Passover is over and it’s time to enter the freedom challenge. Hop on over and fill out the mission for your chance to win some exciting prizes!

As we move on from Passover, it’s time to count the Omer. When the Jews left Egypt, they counted the days until the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. We do the same, counting 49 days from the second night of Passover until the holiday of Shavuot, when we celebrate the giving of the Torah and listen to the 10 commandments being read in the synagogue. Print and decorate ourOmer-counting chart and use it to help keep track of the days.

The week after Passover it’s traditional to bake challah, so follow along with our challah baking video and try it yourself at home. This week we also read the Torah portion of Shemini, which tells us which types of animals, birds and fish are kosher. Discover which signs to look out for in kosher fish by decorating these colorful fish cupcakes.

Have a great week!

WEEKLY TORAH FOR  KIDS:  Parshat Tzav

Nissan 5, 5775 · March 25, 2015
Burning Flame

Granny Shapiro had never been on an airplane. It was not that she had not wanted to ride one; it was just that when she was a young lady, airplanes were not around, and when she was older – well, she was very afraid.

But now, with her granddaughter’s wedding taking place in Israel, Mrs. Shapiro was about to embark on her very first flight. And she was very afraid. As she sat down in her aisle seat, she looked around at her surroundings. She noticed a nice young man sitting across the row from her.

“So when the Jews have a fiery love for G‑d in their hearts, then He will dwell in them?””Excuse me,” she said, turning to the man just as the plane took off and was gaining altitude. “I am so scared. This is my first time on a plane and I do not understand. How come the plane does not crash? How do we stay in the air? How does this all work?

“Whoa – just calm down, Ma’am, there is no need to be afraid,” said the man, smiling. “I have flown dozens of times and nothing has ever happened. You see, each plane is tested time and time again before takeoff. They make sure that the engines are going to be working the entire time that the plane is in the air.”

Mrs. Shapiro slightly loosened her grip on her chair. “Are you trying to tell me that the entire time that we are in the air, there are engines working to make this plane fly?”

“Absolutely, there is no need to be afraid.”

“Ach, then it is just like the Jews,” commented Mrs. Shapiro.

“Excuse me?”

“Yes, you know what the Sanctuary is, or the Temple?” began Mrs. Shapiro.

“Of course, it is in Jerusalem. The Western Wall is all that is left.”

“Well, let me tell you, it is also in your heart. G‑d says He will dwell in the heart of every Jew. So G‑d is in our personal Sanctuary, our hearts.”

“Yes, Ma’am,” said the young man. “That sounds nice. But what has that got to do with the engines of the plane?”

Mrs. Shapiro looked at the man approvingly. “You are a smart man. So let me tell you the answer right away. You see, the Sanctuary had an altar that was always lit. There was always a fire burning, just like your example of how the airplane always has its engines running. So G‑d tells the Jewish people that every Jew needs to have a fiery love for G‑d, just like the altar always has a fire burning.”

“Oh, so when the Jews have a fiery love for G‑d in their hearts, then He will dwell in them?” asked the young man.

“Exactly,” exclaimed Mrs. Shapiro. “You caught on right away. When we keep a fire burning in our hearts for G‑d, then G‑d comes and dwells inside us.”

“So if G‑d is inside us, there no reason to be afraid of airplanes, is there, Mrs. Shapiro?”

“Of course not! Who said I was afraid?” said Mrs. Shapiro.

She sat back in her seat and relaxed, with a deep sigh. Soon they would be in Jerusalem.

Watch How Passover Matzah is Made

Nissan 2, 5775 · March 22, 2015
Hey kids!

Just 2 weeks until Passover begins! Passover is also called Z’man Cheiruteinu, the Festival of Freedom, because we celebrate our freedom from Egypt after hundreds of years of slavery.When Pharaoh finally allowed the Jews to leave, they were in such a rush to leave before he changed his mind that they put their dough in their sacks, which they wore on their backs, and they left! They didn’t wait for the dough to rise or the bread to bake. Instead, it baked on their backs from the heat of the hot desert sun. Watch this video to find out how matzah is made today. Parents—your children may be able to experience matzah-making hands-on this year. Many Chabad centers run a model matzah bakery in the weeks leading up to Passover. Find out if there is one near you.

Have a great week!

PS. Stay tuned for a special Passover mission contest in next week’s email!

WEEKLY TORAH FOR  KIDS:  Parshat Vayakhel-Pekudei

Shabbat of Peace
Adar 20, 5775 · March 11, 2015

Mr. Cohen walked peacefully out of the synagogue one spring Shabbat morning. Ben, his older boy, was walking right next to his side, while David, his younger son, was hopping and skipping a few feet ahead.

“Daaaad…” David was calling him in an excited fashion. What did he want?

Mr. Cohen quickly rushed forward only to notice David giving an impish smile and handshake to Mr. McGinn, David’s boss.

For the past six weeks, Mr. Cohen had been employed in a new job, which was rather demanding. On several occasions his new boss had telephoned him at home quite late in the evening, asking questions and giving instructions about the work.

Quick to act, Mr. Cohen also offered his hand to his Mr. McGinn and said, “Err…how nice to meet you on the street like this…well…have a nice day, now.” Mr. McGinn opened his mouth as if to ask a question, but then quickly closed it as Mr. Cohen continued his purposeful stride, onwards, towards home, his two sons almost running to keep up.

“Dad,” Ben asked. He was a serious boy and something had struck him during the brief encounter. “Why did you cut it so short with your boss? Don’t you have plenty of things to discuss with him?”

Mr. Cohen looked down fondly at his son and smiled. “What a great opportunity to be asking that question! This week’s Torah portion talks about how Moses commanded the Jewish people to keep Shabbat…”

Ben wrinkled his brow. “Yes, but you can still keep Shabbat and talk with people, can’t you?”

“That is exactly it. Moses says something like this: “For six days work should be done, and the seventh day should be holy for you, a Shabbat for G‑d, a day of rest.” Even though they were working on building the beautiful Sanctuary during the week, when it came to Shabbat they stopped work.”

“Yes,” said Ben, “I remember hearing in school that we know from building the Sanctuary what kind of work is forbidden on Shabbat. There are 39 categories of work which went into making the Sanctuary, and those are the kinds of work which are forbidden. But Dad, I don’t remember that speaking was one of them.”

“You are right, Ben” said Mr. Cohen. “But the Sages tell us that on Shabbat we should try to be focused on more spiritual things. I could tell that Mr. McGinn wanted to talk to me about our work in the office. So the best thing was to keep our little meeting short.”

“I understand,” said Ben. “On Shabbat, it’s as if the Sanctuary has been built, and we are just focused on enjoying it.”

They had reached home, and Mrs. Cohen was standing in the doorway, with baby Alex on her arm, greeting them with a warm smile. “Shabbat Shalom!”

Hey kids!

Children in Ukraine have been living through a serious war for the past year. Despite the extremely difficult conditions, the Jewish community in Kharkov, Ukraine, celebrated Purim with true spirit. Thousands of people gathered at the circus where they listened to the megillah, did the Purim mitzvahs and enjoyed acrobats, clowns, singing and dancing. Kids from several of the Jewish schools performed as well. Check it out here.

As we approach Passover (and we have lots of exciting Passover-related content for you below), when we celebrate our nation’s freedom from Egypt, let’s think of our brothers and sisters in war-torn Ukraine, who are surely yearning for their own freedom and safety. Click here to say a prayer for their well-being.

Have a great week!
