Each student will participate in a year- long project; documenting and showing their connection the variety areas studied about Israel using different mediums.  The 5th Grade Kallah focuses on the Kibbutz Movement. During the kallah, the students work together to create mock-Kibbutz communities in which they learn how Kibbutz societies function, and how the geography in Israel affects everyday life.  Through all of these exciting activities the students will connect with Israeli culture and society. Grade 5 students learn the following prayers: Sh’ma and V’ahavta, Yotzer Or, Mi Chamocha, Avot V’Imahot and G’vurot.
