Beginning in the Third grade our students can choose between a Sunday/Tuesday or a Sunday/Wednesday program. Each day they will study Hebrew and Judaics. This flexible and family-friendly approach provides a program grounded in the best practices in Jewish education. Class time for the weekday class is from 4:15 – 6:00 p.m. The Sunday class will be from 9 – 11:30 a.m.
Our families with students in 3rd- 6th grade enjoy two days of programming each week that include both Judaic and Hebrew learning. We no longer have the traditional Sunday School and Hebrew School programs, but rather students are able to choose between a Sunday/Tuesday or a Sunday/Wednesday integrated approach to learning. Our younger students also benefit from the integrated Hebrew program, as well as the art, drama, cooking, and music curriculum while continuing to attend only on Sundays. We know that students learn best by “doing” and that’s exactly the educational approach we promise to provide for our students.
Midweek Chuggim Program (3rd-6th Grade Students)
Our 3rd-6th Grade Midweek curriculum includes a special “Chuggim” club rotation for our students. No longer do our students learn in a formal classroom setting. Rather, they participate in Chuggim such as art, cooking, drama, newspaper and media while they learn about different Judaic topics.
