Family Education at Congregation Beth Adam

Each year we choose a different theme for our Family Education days at Congregation Beth Adam.  In recent years we’ve learned about Israel, Jewish Calendar, Values, and other topics.  This year we talked about Religion and Science.

We talked quite a bit about perspective, and the groups were given pages from the book Zoom or Re-Zoom to put in order.  It was a great conversation starter.  We talked quite a bit about religion and science – and how and why both are important.  With the older grades, we studied the Scopes Trial quite a bit.  And we talked about the creation of the world in the Torah story vs. the Big Bang, which kids illustrated with WikkiStix.  You’ll get a sense of the activities in the photos below.
