A sneek peek at our curriculum…
The lessons are multi-sensory, & hands-on, ensuring that the students truly experience what they are being taught.
The children will learn and befriend all the letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Phonemic awareness will be integrated into these lessons, so each child can match letters, with their sounds.
The children will learn various vocabulary words, and common language words in the Hebrew language, through circle & play time, hanging posters, contests, songs, and dances.
Holidays & Shabbat
Hands-on lessons on each Jewish holiday will fill the calendar as we begin with learning about the High Holidays and continue throughout the year. By the end of the year, the students will have a deeper understanding and appreciation of each holiday, its traditions and customs, and on Shabbat, and its special meaning to the Jewish people.
An overview of Jewish history starting with creation, to the giving of the Torah, to modern day Israel will be taught through interactive stories and art projects.
Study of various Torah portions & stories to pique the children’s interest
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.
The students gain an appreciation of our heritage and culture that has been preserved throughout the ages through various cultural crafts, literature, and songs, presented throughout the year.
Jewish Song & Dance
Through Song and dance, our students are taught to develop an enjoyment and understanding of a variety of both traditional and Israeli songs. Each song is taught through rhythm, movement and educational activities.
Chesed – Social Action
Through projects focused on sharing and giving, the students will form a special relationship with other Jewish children around the world, experiencing first hand, how they can make a difference in another child’s life.
Jewish Values & Ethics
Beginning with the origins of the Mitzvot, students will explore, read, and discuss practical applications of good deeds, and ways of bringing it into the life of a little child. Children will understand that our religion is based on a G-d given set of values and morals, and will gain an appreciation for their meaning.
Extra Curricular Activities
Our School will offer a variety of extracurricular activities such as Friday night dinners, family fun days, Holiday celebrations, and contests. These events will allow our students to experience Judaism in the context of a community.
