For the Kids

One Minute in Time



In Parshat Naso, all the tribes bring offerings to the finished tabernacle: animals, food and incense. On Memorial Day, we make an offering to all the soldiers who died in all of our wars. We bring flowers to their graves, raise the American flag and honor their memory. We also have lots of fun on Memorial Day. There are parades and picnics, food and family festivals. In order to remember what Memorial Day is all about, our government passed a resolution in December 2000, called the National Moment of Remembrance. We are asked to stop what we are doing for one minute, at 3 p.m., and spend that time remembering our fallen heroes. Can you remember to take that moment for remembrance?



Freedom and Responsibility



The Israelites were set free from Egypt. Three months later they received the great responsibility of the Torah. How are freedom and responsibility related? Tell a story, write a poem or create a cartoon that demonstrates the connection between the two. Deadline: June 24. Prize: A free pass to an area theme park or entertainment complex.
