Our 2nd grade JQuesters explore Jewish life, rituals, and customs in their L’Chayim curriculum on Sunday mornings and focus on the Exodus story and Jewish teachings of justice (Tzedek) in their Tuesday Quests.
Sundays include hands-on curriculum that focuses on acting out and creating Shabbat rituals and symbols of a Jewish home. In addition to the L’Chayim (Jewish life) curriculum students participate in:
T’fillot with families to gain familiarity with prayers, the act of praying, and connect to clergy
Ivrit where students learn Hebrew in a call and response manner. From week 1 students will be able to understand the language that binds us together and learn the Hebrew words used on holidays, in the synagogue, and home rituals.
Shira (music) where students learn beloved songs of the Jewish people
Chagim Chugim where students learn about the regular holidays and create objects, read stories, and practice rituals associated with those holidays.
