Our current curriculum and format is inspired by the word “Hineinu,” Hebrew for “Here We Are.” Wherever each of us is individually, we will continue to learn and grow together. The hallmarks of this program include bringing Jewish learning into the home, involving the family in multi-generational learning, removing physical and geographical barriers, and extending learning opportunities beyond the classroom.

“Here” may look different for each of our students based on the curricular goals for their age and developmental levels. Therefore, we are structuring our program into units, similar to summer camp:

Bonim: Builders (PreK-2nd Grade)

Students in PK-2nd grade will receive foundational understandings of what it means to be part of a Jewish community and the rituals, customs, traditions, and responsibilities that come with it.  

Chalutzim: Pioneers (3rd-6th Grade)
Students in 3rd-6th grade will dive deeper into Jewish values and personal identity, working toward joining the covenant of the Jewish people at their Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Classes will meet weekly, each with a set of content and curricular goals, and have the chance to shape their own Jewish experience by choosing from a set of interactive, culture-based electives (chugim) including art, music, dance, cooking, and nature.

Gesher: Bridge (7th & 8th Grade)
Generally the time most of our students have their B Mitzvah, this “bridge” into Jewish adulthood is the perfect opportunity to make a direct move from learning Judaism to doing Judaism and becoming active members of our temple’s community. Classmates will celebrate each other’s individual accomplishments as well as begin to collaborate on larger mitzvah projects to show the real impact they can collectively have on the world.

Hebrew High (9th-12th Grade)
Our new and re-imagined Hebrew High is part of our Teen Learning Program, which allows for teens to explore and continue to develop their Jewish identity through a variety of ways.
