As part of a Holocaust unit, Mr. Parry came to present to 10th grade English students. Mr. Parry is an expert of ancient Hebrew, and he has visited Israel over a dozen times. He translated all of the students’ names into Hebrew, and allowed them to touch a 500 year old Hebrew scroll. He explained how the ancient Hebrew language doesn’t use vowels (such as the letters a, e, i, o, u), and how it is read from right to left instead of left to right. He also shared examples of Jew’s rich culture, in order to give students more context as they read about the Holocaust.
