Grades K-2 
Participants enjoy Family T'filah (prayer) followed by activity based learning by grade. Our qualified and enthusiastic educators joyfully guide our youngest students with hands-on activities, music, stories, art, and play.


Small Group Hebrew
Grades 3-5 study Hebrew in small groups of 4-7 students. Groups are offered on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays at various times. All small Hebrew groups are organized based on creating a community of learners who will work together and proceed through our Hebrew curriculum in a style and pace that meets their needs and matches with the appropriate teacher. We are committed to finding the best learning environment and scheduling option for your family.


Grades 3-5 Judaic Studies
Our 3-5th grade students explore Judaism through three lenses – Torah (Jewish Wisdom) Avodah (Worship and Spirituality) and Gemilut Hasadim (Deeds of Loving Kindness – Jewish Values). Students engage in lively discussions that encourages them to ask questions and make connections between Jewish tradition and history and its application in today’s world. Projects and activites are designed to encourage student choice as they express their understanding with others.


Chugim - Electives - Grades 3-5
CHUGIM are electives for students in grades 3, 4, & 5 offered during the second hour (11:00 a.m. - noon) on Sunday mornings as part of the SHACHARIT program. Our CHUGIM empowers students to make choices about how and what they learn. They are designed to be educational, experiential, innovative and fun! 


Family Learning
Sunday mornings are family time! Join us for Family T'filah to start the day, and then check out one of our Adult Learning classes, parent workshops, or our Little Explorers program for your preschoolers and under. Yearly special events include Family Mitzvah Day, Purim Palooza, grade level workshops, and field trips.
