Temple Israel households celebrated the weekly Torah portion —Parshat Noah — via a enjoyable, hands-on celebration on Sunday, Oct. 30.
Religious college college students discovered about Noah and the flood via the lens of how we will take care of our animals. Each scholar gave Hebrew names to their animals (actual and stuffed), made particular baggage for pets and animals in shelters, discovered about organizations that look after animals and shared a communal blessing.
Rabbi Josh Bennett taught everybody a Blessing of the Animals. Following the blessing, households had been in a position to be taught from visiting animal group distributors and join with each other over lunch. The pet baggage with toys and treats had been donated to Teacher’s Pet, a corporation that pairs shelter animals with at-risk youth in the Metro Detroit space.
