CURRICULUM & INCLUSION
Every Level, Every Need
Our Religious School always welcomes new students and is experienced working with children who have had very little Hebrew education. The Hebrew curriculum is individualized so that students in the same class can work at different paces, guided by both teachers and madrichim (class aides). Our faculty includes an Inclusive Education specialist who is happy to work with families to ensure that students learn in the environment best suited for their needs.
We utilize the Behrman House curriculum, the official publishing house of the Union for Reform Judaism. We use the Mitakadem curriculum for individualized, self-paced Hebrew learning, for students of different learning styles and abilities. Our Judaic studies curriculum incorporates the Chai curriculum with theater music, dance, and cultural learning activities to provide our students with a holistic, engaging Jewish education.
Learning in Jewish Time
Classes meet on Saturday morning, while our adult community is in services. Students are afforded the opportunity not just to be a part of Shabbat, but to truly connect with the entire community. It also allows parents the opportunity to attend services, while preserving Sunday for family time.
Grades 3-8 meet Saturdays, 9:30-12:30
Pre-k-2 meet Saturdays, 9:30-11, with aftercare available 11-12:30.
Grades 9-10 meet at various times throughout the year. Check the confirmation calendar.
