Let Them Eat Cake!

Students in Grade 6 Humanities learned about the traditions and history behind Epiphany, or Three Kings Day — the day the three kings came to visit baby Jesus. In parts of Latin America, a big part of the holiday tradition is the rosca de reyes, or Three Kings cake. Parent Judy Dumontet, who grew up in Latin America, treated students to cake and shared traditions from the January 6 holiday.

Because sixth graders are learning about the foundations of Judaism, she also discussed and answered questions about the history and laws of Judaism—particularly on how food and its preparation is so central to religions such as Judaism and Islam. If you have any questions about how to keep Kosher, just ask a Turning Point sixth grader!
