The study of Parashat HaShavua (the weekly Torah portion) is a highlight of the week at Beit Rabban Day School. Students in Kevutzot engage directly with the text of the Torah, sometimes delving deep into an individual verse or word and other times taking in the broad sweep of the narrative. Their learning may take a number of forms, from artistic exploration to dramatization to heated debate and discussion. No matter the format, however, a hallmark of the study is always the students’ generation of many questions that arise from their encounter with the text which are recorded by the teacher.

At Beit Rabban, in addition to helping students learn Torah and develop the skills to study Torah independently, we also support families in their efforts to learn Torah together. Not only can Torah study at home reinforce and extend students’ learning, but it can also be a concrete way to demonstrate the value that we place on Torah and Judaism. And, it can be an opportunity for rich conversation and intimate connection over the essential questions of life.
In order to help facilitate family Torah study, we are pleased to continue the Beit Rabban Parashah Page, a page about the weekly Torah portion that is sent home with Kevutzot children every Friday. The top of the page includes key themes from the parashah and some questions to consider. The bottom of the page features the questions and comments that students discussed during their conversation about the parashah in class. A link to the Parashah Page will also appear in Ta Shma each week so that families in the Gan can use it as well. We thank Rabbi Lea Gavrieli for the creative thought and energy that she puts into writing these pages every week and invite you to use this page as a springboard for learning Torah with your children.
