ברכה ראשונה

  • Suggested Berachot Rishonot that are specifically connected to the topic at hand
  • You do not need to include ritualized or general berachot rishonot unless there are ones specifically connected to the limmud

לימוד ועבודה פנימית

רש"י שמות פרק א פסוק א

"להודיע חבתם מונה אותם כל שעה"

  1. Who are the people (family and friends)   who love you unconditionally?  How do they show that love? 
  2. Who are the people (family and friends) who YOU love unconditionally? How do you show them that love? 
  3. Think of someone you struggle to get along with or someone who annoys you.  Imagine your life if you felt unconditional love for this person. How do you think your day would be different? What steps do you think you would need to take to find unconditional love for this person? 

ברכה אחרונה

  • Place your beracha achrona here
  • You can have one or multiple suggestions

Notes to the teacher

  • This is the place to make suggestions to the teacher of different ways they may choose to facilitate this limmud
  • Or particular grade levels or sensitivities to take into account
  • Or anything else you think is important for the teacher to know

עבודת המורה

  • This is the place to raise some questions that make sure the teacher tests the limmud on themselves or others
  • Could be a general question like - which part of the limmud resonated most for you? Which question was the hardest for you to answer?
  • Or questions anticipating students’ responses- What do you think students will say for X or Y? To what extent are you open to being surprised?
