We are going to be learning a dance to “How I Praise You” tonight and on Friday May 2nd, but you can get a head-start by watching this teaching video. The first part is dance instruction. Jump to 6:47 on the video to see the dance with the music. Enjoy 🙂
I spotted this beautiful rainbow on our way to San Diego!
We enjoyed our visit today with the folks at Kehilat Ariel in San Diego and wished our KA Yuma friends could have joined in the blessings of the Shabbat service. The congregation is looking forward to meeting the Yuma group during our next visit, which I anticipate will take place in June. When, during today’s Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) service Allen and I were invited to light one of eight candles in commemoration of those who perished in the concentration camps, Rabbi Barney introduced us as the couple who is starting the Yuma havurah. To my surprise, the congregation responded with applause! By this I was reminded that the KA folks are praying for us in support of our work here in Yuma. I also felt, and feel, a deep connection with the Kehilat Ariel family that I would love for you to experience too.
Therefore, I hope you will make plans to caravan with us this June as we head back to Kehilat Ariel for Shabbat service. It is a very special privilege and blessing to join with the larger community of Messianic Jews and Gentiles who love and serve the Messiah in a Jewish context!
Shalom Hebrew Students,
We worked on some worksheets in class tonight. Review or complete them during the week. We will be reviewing them in class next Tuesday. Try not to look up the answers! Read the words aloud as you write them, and say them aloud as you read them. For the writing worksheet, you may refer to the vocabulary chart for the correct spelling.

Shalom KA Yuma Havurah Folks,
You’re invited to caravan with us to attend the Shabbat service at Kehilat Ariel Messianic Jewish Synagogue in San Diego, CA on Saturday, June 14th. We will arrive in time for dance practice (you can just observe if you have “two left feet”). At the 10:30 service we’ll enjoy enriching worship & teaching. Then we’ll browse the KA Judaica shop and head over to the Oneg to meet the Rabbi and meet some of the friendly folk at Kehilat Ariel.
Afterward, we’ll enjoy lunch at the best Jewish deli in San Diego. They have a bountiful takeout food & bakery area plus a gift shop with a small Judaica section that carries a large variety of seasonally themed gifts, among others. Bring spending money if you plan to shop.
This is a day trip.
Depart Yuma: 6:00 AM
Arrive San Diego: 9:30 AM
Depart San Diego: 3:00 PM
Arrive Yuma: 6:30 PM
The caravan will leave promptly at 6:00 AM. Hope you can join us!
Thanks to all who pitched in to make the Seder such a joy. We savored the night in so many ways. First, it was a great pleasure and honor to meet with the King of Kings, our Messiah Yeshua! How awesome is it that our God calls us to meet with him at his appointed times? Like a Daddy who wants to spend time with his children, HaShem says, “Come, spend time with me, remember me, remember the great deliverance and salvation I have made for you!” Add to this the happiness of celebrating with good friends, new friends, great food, a little dance, and you get the picture of our Seder.
A special thanks to Paula of Yuma First Assembly Church for not only allowing us the use of their facility, but also for arranging to have the beautiful space set up and ready for us! It was absolutely perfect for our Seder.
We will meet at Pat’s place this Tuesday. Until then, use the flash cards below to switch from reading print to script and to memorize and write the pronouns. Then practice using the correct pronoun with the following vocabulary chart. “Read, Write, and Say” is our homework motto. Read each word, write it, and say it. In class next week, we will add “Do it”.
Who has signed up for what? It’s all on the list.
Contact me if I missed something or made a mistake.
