Shema is one of the most central elements of Jewish prayer. In this activity, students will learn modern interpretations of the Shema and V’ahavta, compare and contrast traditional and modern meanings, and create personal meaning using multiple ways of expression. Pictured is the Knesset Menorah Shema Inscription in Jerusalem, Israel.
