Welcome to Kindergarten class. My name is Natalya Martyushova. I am very excited about this coming school year. There will be lots of fun and engaging activities for children during our Jewish discovery throughout the year. During our time, Meet the Teacher, I will explain in details about our curriculum for the Kindergarten class. If you have questions, please contact me at

Topic of the day: Rosh HaShanah

  • Introduce children to the meaning and traditions of the holiday, Rosh HaShanah.

  • Introduce the vocabulary and symbols of the holiday, RoshHaShanah:


Rosh HaShanah – New Year ( Head of the Year) , Tapuchim- Apples,

Dvash – Honey, Shofar – Shofar ( a horn that we blow on High Holy Days),

the Torah) , Shanah Tovah! –Happy New Year! ( greeting for Rosh Hashanah).

Suggestion for family activities: Have a discussion with children about what they liked and what they did not like about the past year, how they can do better in the coming year.
