CurriculumWe're impressed with our curriculum, now it's your turn! We hope to engage your child's sense of identity by capturing his/her imagination and attention. So, we put a lot of effort into providing our students with substantive lessons and a positive atmosphere. 
  Curriculum
The lessons are multi-sensory and hands-on, ensuring that the students truly experience what they are being taught. The lessons are structured with discussion-starters, to create a lively, interactive classroom experience. The information truly becomes the student's own.

 

·      Hebrew - Beginning with letter recognition for our youngest children, this program leads students through phonetic decoding, reading comprehension & writing. Age appropriate textbooks and workbooks will be completed throughout the year. We also implement the successful and effective Aleph Champ Program.


·      Torah (Bible) & Jewish History - The children are introduced to the characters and stories of the Torah. They are given an overview of Jewish history starting with creation to the giving of the Torah to modern day Israel.

·      Holidays - Each grade examines the holiday from a totally different perspective, making each year's learning a new and exciting holiday adventure. Hands-on lessons on each Jewish holiday will fill the calendar as we proceed from Rosh Hashanah and the High Holidays through the holiday of Shavuot. The students will have a deeper understanding of each holiday, its traditions and customs. We will also host holiday celebrations for students and their families.

·      Jewish Values and Ethics - Perhaps the most important component of a Jewish education is the understanding that our religion is based on a G‑d given set of values and ethics. Our students learn the Mitzvot and gain an appreciation for their relevance in the 21st century.
 

o     "Marvelous Midos & Manners" is a selection of 12 human-to-human Mitzvot, including respect, gratitude and Tzedakah.

o     "My Jewish Home" is a virtual tour of the Mitzvot connected to a home, including Mezzuzah, Shabbat, Kosher and cleanliness.

o     "Torahpedia" is a Torah and Mitzvot encyclopedia with one Mitzvah for each letter of the Aleph Bet, including the environment, appreciation, humility, proper treatment of animals, Kiddush and happiness.

·      Arts & Crafts - Art projects are incorporated into our curriculum to add to the excitement of the upcoming holidays and Mitzvot.

·      Extra Curricular - We offer a variety of extra curricular activities such as special guest speakers, Friday night dinners, and contests. These events allow our students to experience Judaism in its entirety. A point system based on in-class and out-of-class participation will allow students to reach different award levels.
