Our religious school for children includes Bereshit Beginnings (Grades K-2), Katan (Grade 3), and Gadol (Grades 4-7). Bereshit Beginnings & Katan students have active Aleph Bet exposure and a focus on Shabbat and Holidays. Gadol students focus on T’fillah (prayer), Bible, Hebrew, Israel, Holidays, Traditions, and Mitzvot.
Programs meet for a Sunday morning session (Bereshit Beginnings 9:30-11:00AM / Katan & Gadol 9:30AM-12:00PM) that includes an opening prayer and reflection with Rabbi Charlie, Judaics and Hebrew, and concludes with a Jewish Learning Workshop: active and engaging activities for students with a wide range of topics such as Tikkun Olam, Mitzvot, Music, Cooking, Holiday Activities, Drama, and Storytelling. Gadol students also meet Wednesday afternoons (5:00-6:00PM) for a Hebrew workshop.
Shana Tova to everyone!
It has been a great start to our school year. We have new families and new programming, and we are excited to get into the swing of things. We began the year reviewing letters and sounds, singing familiar prayers and baking some delicious honey cake to start the year in a very sweet way.
We are setting goals for ourselves and discussing what qualities it takes to be a mensch. The month of October is full to the brim of fun activities for Sukkot, a trip to the zoo. Be sure to register and join us!
