Dear Parents,

Our goals are to strengthen Jewish identity by teaching the various aspects of Judaism and instill a sense of social responsibility based on the ethical values of Judaism.

The curriculum is structured to avoid repetitiveness. Topics that naturally occur every year such as holidays are presented at greater depth and with a different focus reflecting the core ethical values of the grade’s curriculum.

In 2022/2023 we are offering the following classes:

  • 4-5 years old : 09:00 am – 09:30 am
  • 6-8 years old Group A: 09:45 am – 10:30 am
  • 6-8 years old Group B: 10:45 am – 11:30 am
  • 9 years old and up Group A: 11:45 am – 12:30 pm
  • 9 years old and up Group B: 12:45 pm – 01:30 p

Our curriculum takes into account potential two-grade combinations in a single classroom and is structured so that it can be presented in 2-year cycles or independently each year.
