K’tanim "Little Ones" Class (Sundays 3pm-4pm)

Led by Nicole Hubbard

K'tanim is an opportunity for families with children aged 0 to 4 years to come together for the first hour of religious school to experience Judaism through song, dance, and art. 

K'tanim is a wonderful opportunity for families of young children to come together, get to know each other, and connect with the Kindergarten and 1st grade class as well. 

Kindergarten-1st Grade Class (Sundays 3pm-5:30pm)

Led by Nicole Hubbard

Our kindergartners and 1st graders learn about Jewish values (Mitzvot), holidays, Shabbat, and the Hebrew Aleph Bet (alphabet) through an experiential program focused on song, movement, and repetition. Students will work on their Aleph Bet skills each week, and by the time they are ready to move on to the 2nd grade class, they will know all of their Hebrew letters.            

 

2nd-3rd Grade Class (Sundays 3pm-5:30pm)

Led by Melissa Goldman 

The 2nd and 3rd grade class focuses on Torah stories, Gemilut Hasadim (acts of loving-kindness), Jewish holidays, and Hebrew.

Arts and biblio-drama will be an important component of their learning adventure!

This combined class is on a two-year cycle. Last school year ('22-23) began with Torah stories from the Five Books of Moses; this school year picks up with stories from the books of the prophets. 

 

4th-5th Grade Class (Sundays and Tuesdays)

Sundays 3pm-5:30pm

Led by Kat Hubbard

The 4th-5th grade curriculum on Sundays will focus on Jewish History (Our Place in the World, Jewish Identity, How did we get here?); Hebrew and prayers. 

Because this combined class is on a two-year cycle, last school year (2022-2023) focused on the Jewish life cycle, Jewish rituals and perspectives of this grand experience of being human. 

Tuesdays 4:30pm-6:00pm

Led by Kat Hubbard and Lael Har

In addition to Sundays on site at Nevei Kodesh, the 4th-7th graders meet on Tuesday afternoons for additional enrichment. The students are placed in Hebrew groups according to their Hebrew knowledge.

The class begins with all grades together for community connection, followed by breakout rooms with their teachers for Hebrew literacy and comprehension and then grade-specific learning.

On Tuesdays, the 4th-5th graders will focus on learning Hebrew prayers and creating their own illustrated prayer books. They will explore, reflect and discuss the deeper meanings of the prayers, making them their own.  

 

Crossing the River (CTR): The B'nai Mitzvah Journey (Sundays and Tuesdays)

We have created an in-depth two-year B'nai Mitzvah program called "Crossing the River", a name inspired by Rabbi Burt Jacobson's curriculum. This two-year CTR program is designed for students ages 11 through 15.

We approach the B'nai Mitzvah learning as a process of discovery and transformation. Students are encouraged to explore their sense of themselves and their core values, as well as to deepen their Jewish knowledge and experience in all Four Worlds (Assiyah/physical; Yetzirah/emotional; Briyah/intellectual; Atzilut/spiritual).

Our program empowers Bar/Bet/Bat-Mitzvah students to voice what they want their 'Jewishness' to mean. We help them uncover how to authentically manifest traditions and spirituality in their lives.

We are here to serve as teachers and guides, as we accompany families through this new terrain. Sometimes we find calm waters, and other times things can get choppy, as we cross the river into adulthood.  

Students of all genders, sexualities, and backgrounds are welcome to join us, regardless of where they are on their journey discovering Judaism.

Sundays 3-5:30pm

Led by Aviva Grossberg

We will be exploring and deepening our relationship to Torah and Mitzvot, as well as completing our learning about the Jewish Holiday Cycle, the Jewish Life Cycle, and an overview of Jewish History.

Tuesdays 4:30pm-6pm

Led by Kat Hubbard and Lael Har

In addition to Sundays on site at Nevei Kodesh, the 4th-7th graders meet on Tuesday afternoons from 4:30pm to 6pm for additional enrichment. The students are assigned their Hebrew study groups according to their level of Hebrew knowledge.

The class begins with all grades together for community connection, followed by breakout rooms with their teachers for Hebrew literacy and comprehension, and then grade specific learning.
