Our curriculum this year is broken into two parts for each of our age groups.

For the first part of programming:

Kindergarten through 2nd Grade will be learning about the parshas and haggim (sections of the Torah and Jewish Holidays & Festivals), and the hebrew language.

3rd through 6th Grade will be offered a choice of elective for which they will be able to sign up for. These electives include programming including, but not limited to: art, creative writing, and ulpan (hebrew).

For the second part of the curriculum:

We are excited to introduce the La'Bri-ut Program for our Kindergarten through 6th graders.

The La'Bri-ut Program is "build on Jewish values that stand on their own, but also complement five caregiving principles..." These modules include:

1. Sukkot Shalom (shelter in peace) - a sense of safety

2. Ometz Lev (inner strength) - a sense of calm

3. G'vurah (courage) - self and communal-efficacy

4. K'hillah (community) - social connectedness

5. Hesed (loving kindness) - hope attained by reaching out to assist others

La'Bri-ut is also framing this year's learning by this text from Pirke Avot:

"If am not for myself, who will be for me?
If I am only for myself, what am I?
If not now, when?"

Each module offers 5 weeks of learning. By using both synchronous and asynchronous programs, La'Bri-ut uses principles of problem-based learning and experiential education. Family involvement is encouraged by weekly conversation starters and there are both tech-free and online options.
