This week we are in parsha Acharei Mot where we pivot from the instructions regarding ritual purity to Nadab and Abihu, and their death. They offered “esh zarah” (strange fire) upon the altar during the dedication of the Tabernacle. Adonai gives futher instructions to Aaron and Moshe in regards to the Holy of Holies and Yom Kippur… Read the parshah to find out what happens next…
Grab your Bible…gather the children! As always, this week’s parsha lends itself to numerous teachable moments! If your children are into math, puzzles and numbers THIS is something they will love. (Shh, I love puzzles and find gematria fascinating too 🙂 The lesson opportunities, crafty projects and discussion topics are rich this week: obedience, goats and loving your neighbor are just a few.
HERE you’ll find a parsha overview. HERE are some child friendly parsha overview and videos. HERE is some Hebrew copywork. HERE you will find a parsha Q & A. There are some great parsha related crafty projects HERE.
If your children enjoy songs–HERE is a parsha related, kid-friendly selection. For the older children you’ll find interesting overviews and lessons HERE and HERE. You’ll find lessons for all levels of understanding HERE, too!
HERE is a perfect parsha dessert for any Shabbat! HERE are some tasty recipes and a lot more based on this week’s torah portion. HERE are some more ideas for parsha based menus. These are just some ideas to go along with our ‘Teaching from Torah’ lessons and copywork.
There are some neat parsha related coloring pages HERE and HERE for those who love to color (we love these pencils!) while listening to reading or to keep very little ones hands busy. You can find our Acharei Mot Copywork HERE, as well as extra blank lined pages for daily copywork.
My hope is to edit these pages each year with updated / more links, projects, etc. and that your time spent as a family learning Torah is richly blessed by YHVH.
