Grade 6 takes a journey through Jewish history, beginning with our earliest ancestors, Abraham and Sarah, and ending with the latest link in the chain—us! The children participate in interactive programming at each stage of the Jewish timeline, from role-playing a town meeting in a shtetl to simulating the journey to Ellis Island. Each year, the class also takes a trip to the Lower East Side and the Tenement Museum, the students present oral reports based on their interview of an immigrant to the US, and the class presents its own “Living Museum”, in which the students curate an exhibit of important artifacts from their own families. Our Hebrew studies continue to prepare the children for all the prayers they will lead at their bar/bat mitzvah service, and the students learn the Torah cantillation skills they will need to chant their Torah portions.
