Welcome to SHACHARIT!

SHACHARIT is our Jewish learning program for students in grades K-5! The program follows a school-year schedule and offers opportunities  throughout the week for activity-based learning projects, small peer groups, worship, and spirituality. SHACHARIT also includes Small Group Hebrew for students in grades 2-5.

As we begin the 2020-2021 school-year, SHACHARIT will be fully remote. We will continue to monitor the situation, as we consider whether we will be able to offer in-person learning options in the future. 

SHACHARIT Program Components

JEWISH LEARNING

One-hour Sessions
Sundays at 9 AM, 11 AM, or 4 PM


Using a Project-Based Approach, our qualified and enthusiastic Jewish educators guide our students through hands-on projects that incorporate music, stories, art, and games.  Students engage in lively discussions that encourage them to ask questions and make connections between Jewish tradition and today‚Äôs world. Projects are designed to encourage student choice.

Jewish Learning is divided into four quarters. The first quarter, An Exploration of Jewish Time,  covers September 13 through October 18, 2020.  Students choose a new project each quarter.

HEBREW

Grades 3-6: One-hour Small Group Hebrew
Grade 2: 30-minute Intro to Hebrew
Once per Week (Days and Times Vary)


Learners in Grades 2-5 study Hebrew in small groups of 4-7 students. Groups are offered on throughout the week at various times. Our Hebrew groups are carefully organized with the goal of creating a community of learners who will work together well and proceed through our Hebrew curriculum in a style and pace that meets their needs. We are committed to finding the best learning environment and scheduling option for your family.

WORSHIP/SPIRITUALITY

Shabbat B'Yachad
Second Friday of the Month at 6:30 PM
October 9, November  13, December 11


Judaism offers us many paths to travel as we deepen our own spirituality. SHACHARIT is proud to offer our families an interactive, family friendly service on called Shabbat B'Yachad on the second Friday of the month. This service can be accessed by Zoom and incorporates spirited singing, interactive Torah elements, and other Family T'filah favorites. 

COMMUNITY (KEHILLAH) GROUPS

30-minute Kehillah Group
Once per Week (Days and Times Vary)
Starting the Second Quarter


With the goals of fostering Jewish community, encouraging creativity, and building self-esteem, SHACAHRIT students are placed in small peer Kehillah groups (6-10 students) based on their schedule. Kehillah Groups will be led by an adult staff member who will plan conversations, activities, and games for each meetup. Groups will meet for 30 minutes per week and students will be placed with similar-aged peers!
