Our Judaic Studies curriculum is built on the foundational concepts of Torah (study), Avodah (worship), and Gemilut Chasadim (acts of loving kindness). While all grades learn within these three areas, each grade’s curriculum emphasizes a specific topic and has a few values and holidays that tie into this topic and are studied more in depth.

Our students in Kindergarten are exposed to many creative activities that will provide a solid foundation for their Jewish lives. They will be introduced to symbols around the synagogue, in addition to learning more information about the Jewish holidays and calendar. They will be introduced to basic objects and foods that have Jewish significance here in the synagogue and at home. Students in Kindergarten attend music and visit the library weekly. Our Kindergarten students study and learn about the Sh’ma prayer in preparation for their Consecration ceremony where the lead the Sh’ma with the congregation.
