"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

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.
