Nevei Kodesh Religious School

A journey of connection, discovery and joyous Judaism 

 

It's about cultivating joyous Judaism through experiences and community. We invite children and teens to join us on the adventure of their Jewish journey. As we delve into Jewish values, spirituality, social action and the mystical beauty of Jewish teaching and life; we help foster a personal and collective journey of discovery. 

We respect diversity & love empowering children and teens through Jewish learning

 

Sunday Mornings at Nevei: They are magical! We believe in the transformative power of relationships and belonging and offer a positive, safe space for children to learn, grow and explore. 

Children join class communities and engage in learning based around middot, Jewish values, that also relate to their Jewish journeys. Our staff incorporate creativity, discovery and critical thinking. Preschool - 5th grade students also engage in Hebrew class each week. We begin at 10am each Sunday and allergy-friendly snacks are served each week. 4th - 7th graders also join us on Tuesday afternoons for Chuggim (electives) and Prayerbook Hebrew learning. 

Songs & prayers: From 10-10:30am, 3rd-7th grade students join Rav Bracha for songs and prayers in the sanctuary. During this same time, preschool - 2nd grade students join David for songs downstairs. Parents are welcome to join!

Camp Day Holiday discovery: Camp Days are multi-age groupings of discovery. Students will explore the meanings of the holidays through stations that share learning through social action, arts, science, games, nature, cooking and reflection. On scheduled Camp Day Sundays, we are all together as a community for songs and prayers. Pick up on Camp Days is 12:45pm. 

Preschool & Kindergarten: New this year, we offer a meaningful time of learning, community and connection for preschoolers on Sunday mornings. Throughout the morning, they will explore, learn and enjoy discovering their own unique Jewish journey at our special Religious School. This class begins at age 3 (could be slightly earlier) for children who are potty-trained at our start time and feeling ready to be at Religious School. 

Madrichim Teen Leadership and Work Program: We welcome teens to become madrichim on Sunday mornings at Religious School. Teens bring an amazing value as they connect with students in learning, share songs with Rav Bracha in shira, create allergy-free fun snacks, plan programs and more! There is extensive value in our youngest students seeing our teens staying connected to our beautiful community on Sunday mornings. 

B'nai Mitzvah Program: Crossing the River (CTR): Our CTR 1 & 2, 6th and 7th grade students attend on Sunday mornings and Tuesday afternoons. It provides time and space for them to build special relationships and connections with those in their B'nai Mitzvah year. CTR 1 includes building community with a team leader, study with Rav Bracha, social action project-based learning, special learning components on the social aspect of the B'nai Mitzvah, Weird Torah study with Bill Fisher and field trips. 

CTR 2 includes B'nai Mitzvah learning with Rav Bracha, community building, opportunity and support for personal mitzvah projects, a special learning component on the social aspect of the B'nai Mitzvah journey plus an extensive, passionate and beautiful study of Torah led by Maggid Charna Rosenholz. As we learn more about the ancestors of Jewish tradition, we also develop the necessary critical thinking skills that help students throughout life. In CTR 2, the learning environment is carefully crafted to create a vibrant, inclusive and experiential learning lab for each student. 

In addition, both CTR programs offer parent + child learning classes with our beloved Rabbi and friends throughout the year. These will be held on both Tuesday afternoons and Sunday mornings with the intention to learn, grow and share both with your child and as our CTR Nevei community.
