Students in Grades 4, 5, and 6 meet twice a week:
Sundays from 9 - 11 a.m. (Jewish Studies) and Wednesdays from 4 - 6 p.m. (Tefillah and Hebrew)
At the start of our Religious School day, the whole school gathers for Kehillah! (Community!) where we share stories from our week, sing welcoming songs, and explore Mussar (Jewish Values for Everyday Living) in a child-friendly setting. Each month highlights a new middah (value or virtue) such as Friendship, Courage, and Kindness.
For Hebrew, our students engage in decoding and work through a Hebrew Through Prayer curriculum. For Tefillah (communal worship) our students unpack and uncover meanings of our prayers through creative play, art, journal writing, and small group discussions in addition to working their way through the Matbei'ah Tefilliah (Structure of the service).
For Jewish Studies, each grade enjoys its unique curricular focus such as Jewish Life Cycle, Ethics, Bible, Prophets and Jewish Identity Work which is explored though visual art, music, movement and dance and 21st-century technology.
