Our 3rd grade JQuesters research our holy days and holy objects as part of their two Quests. Students create a ritual museum displaying objects and sharing how they help us bring meaning to special days or sacred places. They also learn about core Jewish holidays, teaching about the holiday cycle to our younger students.
In addition to the Quests, on Tuesdays 3rd graders delve deeply into the prayers and theology of Jewish life exploring the concepts of Blessings (Brachot), Thanks (Hodaot), and Praise (Bakashot) through arts electives. They continue with regularT’fillot, Ivrit, and Shira in order to build Hebrew competence and confidence.
