"Grace" - a Masa Israel Teaching Fellow's first day in the classroom

<div class="masa-blog-title">"Grace" - a Masa Israel Teaching Fellow's first day in the classroom</div>

 
I officially started teaching today. As my teaching partner, Brian was out of the country in order to attend a wedding in the States, I was by myself. I was worried that my students would have forgotten about me—seeing as I only visited them twice last month—but I had no reason to be worried as my students remembered me.
 

Yom Kippur Souls

<div class="masa-blog-title">Yom Kippur Souls</div>

 
God made Adam out of clay, and clay we remain. Bodies are doughy and malleable, and every morning you wake a fresh, blank slab. You can’t quite remember exactly what you are, what you look like, how it feels to be you; so every day you change, slowly, subtly, until your original self is forgotten.
