Listening skills

It is very hard to stay quiet and listen to someone talk. You need to concentrate and understand what they say.

For some people listening skill can be very hard so they need to practice and develop that skill by attention and stay focus all the time.

I personally don't like listening to people who talk too much about there self. I get bored very fast and lose my concentration. At school I draw pictures, it helps me to listen and understand the teacher.

Teenagers get bored very quickly when it gets to listen someone older then them. They usually get busy with more interesting things.

I also personally think that listening is very important, you can learn new things and always ask questions.

Shirel Maimon

My last school trip

Last week we hade our last school trip. The trip was 3 days, at the first day we were in Jerusalem the capital city of Isreal. At Jerusalem we visited the Western Wall. In the evening we went to Judean desert there we had dinner and activities. After that we went to sleep in the tent. The second day of the trip was at Judean desert there we hade a very frightening track with alot of rocks and sand. After the track we went to the Dead Sea there we got into the sea and hade fun. At the evening we got back to the tents and hade karaoke. At the last day of the trip everyone were exhausted. We were at Jerusalem and then we returned home!. I very enjoyed this trip and I hope there will be more!.

High Holidays

Rosh Hashana

Rosh Hashana ia a holiday that evreyone is happy and together. In Rosh Hashana I was at my uncles. We made a big meal and ate together. Rosh Hashanah meals often include apples and honey, to symbolize a sweet new year. Various other foods with a symbolic meaning may be served, depending on local minhag,such as tongue or other meat from the head of an animal to symbolize the head of the year. Other symbolic foods are dates, black-eyed beans, leek, spinach and gourd, all of which are mentioned in the Talmud. Pomegranates are used in many traditions: the use of apples and honey is a late medieval Ashkenazi addition, though it is now almost universally accepted. Typically, round challah bread is served, to symbolize the cycle of the year. Gefilte fish and Lekach are commonly served on this holiday. On the second night, new fruits are served to warrant inclusion of the shehecheyanu blessing, the saying of which would otherwise be doubtful.

Yom Kippur

Yom Kippur is probably the most important holiday of the Jewish year. Many Jews who do not observe any other Jewish custom will refrain from work, fast and/or attend synagogue services on this day. Yom Kippur occurs on the 10th day of Tishri. Yom Kippur is a complete Sabbath; no work can be performed on that day. It is well-known that you are supposed to refrain from eating and drinking (even water) on Yom Kippur. It is a complete, 25-hour fast beginning before sunset on the evening before Yom Kippur and ending after nightfall on the day of Yom Kippur. The Talmud also specifies additional restrictions that are less well-known: washing and bathing, anointing one's body (with cosmetics, deodorants, etc.), wearing leather shoes (Orthodox Jews routinely wear canvas sneakers under their dress clothes on Yom Kippur), and engaging in sexual relations are all prohibited on Yom Kippur.

Succot

Four days after Yom Kippur, we celebrate the holiday of Sukkot. Sukkot is called "The Time of our Rejoicing". How happy we are as we sit in our Succa, together with our family, eating, singing, telling stories. During the festival of Succos, it is a Mitzvah to sit in a Succa, and to eat all our meals there. Each day we also wave the Four Species of plants, in celebration of God's gift of bounty. During the first day no creative activity is permitted. This is similar to Shabbat, with the exception of cooking from an existing flame. The remaining days of Sukkot are called Chol Hamoed, during which creative work activities are permitted. The last day of Sukkot is called Hoshana Raba. The day immediately following Sukkot is also a Yom Tov, called Shmini Atzeret ("Eighth Day of Assembly"). Outside of Israel, this Yom Tov extends two days, with the second day designated as Simchat Torah. This is when we finish reading the final portion of the Torah and begin a new cycle. We dance around the synagogue, holding the Torah scrolls, expressing joy in our treasured Torah.
