Our earliest learners meet once a month on Sunday mornings from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. Together, they explore "My Jewish Year" through storytelling, arts and crafts, movement and dance, and music. Students are also introduced to G'milut Chasadim (Acts of Loving Kindness) through exploring our relationship to the Earth, animals, and our family and friends.
This class is a friendly, fun and warm introduction to our Religious School experience and to learning about the beauty and wisdom of the Jewish tradition.
Kindergarten to Grade 3
Students in Kindergarten, Grades 1, 2 and 3 meet on Sunday mornings from 9 - 11 a.m. 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.
Students are introduced to Hebrew through a ground-breaking program called Ivrit Bitnu'ah (Hebrew Through Movement). This revolutionary Hebrew program is introduced to our younger students and moves with them as they go through the higher grades. To learn more about Hebrew Through Movement.
Each grade enjoys its unique curricular focus such as Bible, Mitzvot, and G'milut Chasadim (Acts of Loving Kindness) which is explored through visual art, music, movement and dance and 21st-century technology.
