Curriculum Outlook for PreK-K
We use these early years to introduce our students to the school and to making them comfortable in the synagogue and excited about Jewish learning. The curriculum emphasizes Jewish holidays and rituals, and introduces students to blessings and prayers (tefillot). Students are introduced to the Hebrew aleph-bet and begin learning the sounds these letters make. The curriculum is enhanced with lots of music, prayers (tefillot) & fun activities. Students will also participate in the main sanctuary service each week.
Curriculum Outlook for 1st Grade
The curriculum is based on the theme of discovering our wonderful Jewish traditions through Bible and holiday stories, a continuation of studying prayers (tefillot) and the blessing (brachot) we recite to communicate with God in everyday life. The curriculum is integrated with lots of music, prayers (tefillot), & fun activities. These 1st graders will be part of a new 1st-4th grade program called “HUT”. Students will be part of a Holidays Happenings, Ulpan Irvi (Hebrew), and Torah Tidbits rotation each week. Students will also participate in the main sanctuary services.
PreK-1st grades meet on Saturdays except the weeks specified on calendar.
