On the holiday of שמיני עצרת/Shemini Atzeret, which follows סוכות/Sukkot, we make a special blessing for גשם/rain. We also begin to pray for גשם in our daily תפילה. 1. Tap 2. Tap and reflect on the following questions. Why do we pray for rain starting at this time of the year? What are we praying for? What role do rain and water play in our lives? We pray for "גשם בעתו– rain at the right time." Why is it important to have the right amount of rain during the right season? How can rain possibly be damaging? When Hashem provides us with water, we can try to use it wisely. Give some examples of ways we can be careful with our water use. 3. Tap and record your responses. 4.
