Sundays, 11:15 am - 1:00 pm;
Wednesdays, 3:30 - 4:20 pm
Teachers: Ellen Flaks, Tamar Segal (Sundays) + Rabbi Ben Newman (Wednesdays)
In this stimulating year, our students focus their Hebrew studies on reading prayers and singing the Shabbat blessings, the Shema, the V’Ahavta, and Mi Chamocha, as well as Hatikvah, Israel’s national anthem. Our study of Jewish values allows the children to learn important lessons that have been passed down from our rabbis through the ages. This is accomplished through literature, class discussions, improvisation and drama. We study and celebrate all the Jewish holidays and collect tzedakah every week in Grade 4. It is a privilege and meaningful experience for this grade to be responsible for the design and performance of the Temple’s Purimshpiel during our annual Purim Carnival.
