Primary Grades

Curriculum 


Kindergarten -- Yehudi (The Jewish Me): Our youngest learners begin their Jewish journey with how to use “all of themselves” in celebrating Jewish life. They focus on the multiplicity of experiences (or what it means to “be Jewish”) in Judaism using a multi-sensory approach, including taste, fragrance, movement, music, feeling and joy.

First Grade -- Bayit (Home): Our first grade community focuses on the idea of “home” and how it acts as the center of Jewish life. Students will explore the importance and influence of the Jewish home over time, from Jewish home and family life in the Bible to their own Jewish home of today. Additionally these students will discover the synagogue as a spiritual home for Jews and Judaism.

Second Grade -- Kehillah (Community): Our second graders focus on the important Jewish task of building a kehillah kedoshah (holy community) and the ways the Jewish community has anchored our people throughout the ages. They will uncover the key Jewish values that support efforts to create and strengthen our connections to and responsibility for one another.
