A Beautiful Poem by Judy Massarano (Morah Yehudit)

Ketzev students began in the fall, 
From K through 5th, we had them all.
We began with Lech Lecha, a suitable place
From which to launch a journey of faith--

Not just in Gd, to keep Avram safe, 
But in Ketzev, this group that keeps rapid pace!
With weekly parsha and yoga, Hebrew and crafts
Holidays, mincha, we're having a blast.

We've studied Sarah, and Yosef, Jacob, Rachel,
Shepherds and  Pharoah, now Moshe, do tell!
New songs every week, and healthy snacks too,
Burning bushes, and skits, cup games--'tis true.

So as we begin the book of Shemot,
Let's rejoice in how far we've come, but not gloat.
We're here to learn from each other and then
From Ziva, Abby, Judy, Molly, Yarden and Rabbi Menachem,
To be a mensch, through love, kindness, and ways of peace
May our learning be joyful, and may it increase.

Shabbat Shalom uMevorach,
