TORAH TOTS


Tot Shabbat—now TORAH TOTS . . . . 
On the First Sunday of Every Month

We are moving our Tot Shabbat Family Experience to the first Sunday of each month. This new program, called TORAH TOTS, will include all religious school students in Michelle and Rachel’s class and any younger child who is not yet in Religious School. We will begin promptly at 9:30 with a light breakfast served in the Garden Room. Then we will gather in the sanctuary for a Tot Service followed by an oneg.  To end the day, families will participate in a hands-on art project created by Nancy Noles, our new art teacher. We will typically have a theme for each TORAH TOTS SUNDAY. Parents and grandparents are invited to participate with the children. At least one adult must be present with each family. Please let Judy Ginsburgh know if you will attend by emailing ginsburgh@bellsouth.net

 

Passover Song Sheet For Torah Tots –
compiled by Judy Ginsburgh

Bang, Bang, Bang                                           

Bang, bang, bang, hold your hammer low                 
Bang, bang, bang give a heavy blow                         
For its work, work, work                                              
Every day and every night                                         
For its work, work, work                                           
When its dark and when its light.                              


Frogs

One morning when Pharoah woke in his bed
There were frogs in his bed and frogs on his head
Frogs on his nose and frogs on his toes
Frogs here, frogs there
Frogs were jumping everywhere.

Let My People Go

 

When Israel was in Egypt land (Let my people go!)

Oppressed so hard, they could not stand (Let my people go!)

Go down, Moses.  Way down to Egypt land

Tell old Pharoah to Let my people go!

 
March Across the Sea by Ellen Allard                         

We’re marching, we’re marching across the sea (2x)             

We are history, we are family

I remember you, you remember me

We’re marching, we’re marching across the sea (2x)

Halleluyah, Halleluyah                                                           
Hallelu, halleluyah!
