This week, we read Parshat Ha’azinu — which literally means “Hearken,” listen, with your ears wide open. In his final speech to the people of Israel, Moshe describes how God’s speech will “flow like the dew.” We can attune our ears to the voice of God when we realize that God’s speech comes to us like the blast of a shofar, but also like the delicate, barely imperceptible sound of the dew in the grass. I spoke with our Grade 5 students about metaphor, and about hearing God’s voice in natural surroundings. Listen to what they had to say.
