Welcome to Sababa 2020-2021
A message from Lori Rubin:
Our units are as follows:
Areas of Focus - Hesed
Check out the work of Richard McBee. On his website, he shares the art of Tanya Fredman. Explore the pieces of art and share with us how you think the art connects to Acts of Loving Kindness.
Listen to the songs below or find your own lyrics that remind you of acts of loving kindness. Be prepared to share the song/s you chose and why/how you think they are reminiscent of Hesed.

Try a Little Kindness - Glen Campbell
One Day - Matisyahu
Choose one of the selections below or find one of your own choosing. Read the book in its entirety and be able to explain what it said to you about Hesed.
