Curriculum

Our students gain an appreciation for the joys, values and traditions of our heritage as they are vividly brought to life by our dedicated and enthusiastic teachers whose creativity and dynamism make every lesson a unique learning experience.

Language

 

 

 

Our students become familiar with the Hebrew alphabet, learn to read, and become accustomed to Hebrew vocabulary. This subject also familiarizes our students with the Siddur- Prayer Book, allowing them to feel comfortable in the Synagogue.

 

Torah

 

 

 

This subject offers an overview of the weekly Torah portion, its highlights and practical lessons relevant to our day and age.

 

History

 

 

 

We take our students from Creation to modern-day Israel including the Exodus from Egypt, The Ten Commandments and the era of the Prophets and Kings. We also focus on Jewish life in medieval times, the Spanish Inquisition, the Holocaust and Jewish Heroes of Yesteryear.

 

Holidays

 

 

 

Lessons on each Jewish holiday with hands-on demonstrations fill the calendar as we proceed from Rosh Hashana through the holiday of Shavuot.

 

Jewish Values

 

 

 

Perhaps the most important component of a Jewish education is the understanding that our religion is based on a G‑d given set of values and ethics. Our students learn the Mitzvot and gain an appreciation for their relevance in the 21st century.

 

Arts and Crafts

 

 

 

Our Arts & Crafts director is an expert at creating projects that have Jewish holiday and mitzvah themes and will add an elegant taste of Jewish decor to your home.

 

Israel

 

 

 

Our students understand that Israel is not just another country but our own homeland. A land that is truly the “Promised Land”, both spiritually and physically.
