Parsha Vayetzei tells us about the dream
that Ya'akov has while sleeping in exile, on the road. He sees malakhim (angels) going up and going down on a ladder. Ya'akov recognizes that G-D is with him on this trip, and in his life, even though he is all alone. Did you know that G-D is always with us, even, and especially, when we feel most alone? Give thanks, and praise to HIM.
We now have

Our vision is to see children grow and flourish spiritually in their relationship with Messiah Yeshua and become solid, strong disciples who will spread the Good News to everyone with whom they come in contact, with joy and zeal.
To guide our children in beginning and strengthening a relationship with Messiah Yeshua by understanding and fully grasping the lessons and concepts in Scripture. To encourage a strong identity as Messianic believers with the whole of B'nei Israel

Coloring pages for your Memory Verse binder
See above to download your Shabbat School Memory Verse coloring page, and then practice it daily. When memorized, these verses are a mighty weapon, a sharp sword, against the enemy.
Remember the memory verses, remember who you are!
WHAT PEOPLE(and the enemy)SAY
WHAT G-D SAYS:
Dwell in the Shelter of Elyon
1 He who dwells in the shelter of Elyon, will abide in the shadow of Shaddai.
2 I will say of Adonai, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.
3 For He will rescue you from the hunter’s trap and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will find refuge. His faithfulness is body armor and shield.
5 You will not fear the terror by night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the plague that stalks in darkness, nor the scourge that lays waste at noon.
— G-D, aka Shaddai, Ad-nai, Elyon, King of Kings,
L-rd of L-rds, Creator of the Universe and all it contains.
To our smiling, faith-filled, most parent obeying, charming, excited, and loving children of Brit Ahm:
(yes, that is all of you!)
Things are a different today than they were even two months ago. You are not going to school. You may not coming to synagogue on Shabbat, but even if you are, things are very different. Shabbat School, Yeladim Classes, Tuesday night study, and even the nursery group is only "virtual". You may have missed out on a spring break trip because of the corona virus, or even know someone who is ill.
Many things have changed, but one important thing has not, and never ever will; G-D our father. THE Father of the whole universe has not changed. He is not surprised by this change, and His plan is the same as it always was. No matter what He is by your side and in control. No matter what He loves you and wants the very best for you.
Here are some things you can do if you are feeling sad, lonely, or scared about the changes:
• Talk with G-D, though HE knows, it often makes us feel better to tell Him out loud what we are feeling, and we can ask Him to give us peace. Remember prayer is very powerful. Remember in your prayers to say thank you too. Being grateful for all the good things in our lives is a good way to remind ourselves that G-d is always here, even if we sometimes forget. You may also submit a prayer here and we will join you in praying for your needs and concerns.
• Trust your parents and follow their instructions to stay safe.
• Read your bible everyday, especially the verses below.
• Limit television viewing. Very few people actually get sick, even though the news on TV makes it seem scary.
• Wash your hands often (anytime you blow your nose, use the bathroom, and before you eat) and for long enough to clean them properly. Sing “Yeshua loves me” while you wash for clean hands. You can also learn the hand-washing blessings in virtual Shabbat school in the video above.
• Look for ways that you can help others: be cheerful, be obedient to your parents, call grandparents, or friends on the phone, and help keep things clean.
• Keep a routine. Get up and go to bed at the same time each day. Eat regular meals with your family, and spend time outdoors playing as much as you can.
• Praise Him often for His protective love.
