But the trip was not really about baking. It was a dose of religious education, offered free to public school students — during school hours, outside their school’s buildings — under a long-running program known as “released time.”
We discussed the Torah portion of the week in which we learned about incredible hospitality of Abraham, our forefather, and how he loved to invite guests into his home. At the ripe old age of 100, G-d blessed Abraham with a son whom he named Issac. At the end of the class, we played a fun game of charades depicting the events of the parsha (Torah portion).
