Animals A11 Around

Shir Tikvah students meet
some inhabitants of Noah's Ark.

STORY: DIANA LIEBERMAN

N

ov. 1 was Shabbat Noah, when congregations through-
out the world read the Torah portion describing the ark
Noah filled with a pair of animals from each species.
At Congregation Shir Tikvah in Troy, educational
director Karen Knoppow planned the ultimate hands-on activity —
bringing animals of all sorts to the synagogue to help teach the
mitzvah of tza'ar ba'alei chaim, being kind to animals.
Shabbat services that day were specifically oriented toward chil-
dren in preschool through grade six, with songs and guitar accom-
paniment by Lisa Soble Siegmann, director of Jewish Experiences
for Families (JEFF), a program of the Alliance for Jewish
Education.
After services, the children interacted with a menagerie from
Waterford-based Science Alive, sat spellbound for a presentation on
animal care from veterinarian and Shir Tikvah member Dr. Gary
Duchan and made a variety of Noah's Ark crafts.
