Our first new letter this month is the letter that makes the “r” sound ר . Note how the ר has a rounded back. That can help us remember that ר makes the “r” sound – rrrr – round.
Did you know that “racoon” is exactly the same word in Hebrew – רקון ?
In November, we’ll start learning about the holiday that comes every week. Which holiday is that? Shabbat!
Before Shabbat, we say “Shabbat Shalom” – שבת שלום “Welcome Shabbat” or “May you have a peaceful Shabbat”.
After Shabbat is over, we wish each other “Shavuah Tov” – שבוע טוב “May you have a good week”.
Shavuah tov שבוע טוב to all of you.
