Today, we discussed the introduction of a new chapter on the Ancient Hebrews. We spent some time talking about their history from 1800 B.C. and the lives of Abraham, Jacob, and Moses. We also covered their holy books, the Tanakh and the Torah as very important sources of Jewish law, history, and teachings.
We took notes with the following worksheet using the textbook Chapter 10, lesson 1 and the timeline on the back is homework for tonight.

We finished watching the Exodus Decoded and taking video notes as well as discussing the various perspectives involved in this biblical event in Jewish history.
We also started a timeline for Judaism that we'll use and add to throughout the chapter. We just did the first few dates: 1800 B.C. , 1600 B.C. and 1500 B.C.
