What is the timing for prayer/mitzvah?
Students learned there are specific times for the performance of certain Jewish ritual actions like certain mitzvot and prayers. The timing of prayer is based on the time of daylight. Daytime is divided into 12 equal sections called proportional hours shaot zmaniyot. Jewish studies students in 9th grade worked on a chart that was divided into four sections. In each section they filled in content and created colored pencil drawings of Dawn, daylight, dusk and night. Teachers; Nachshon Carmi, Eilat Asseo-Brenner and AnitaSchwartz collaborated on the design of this project.
