Our program is designed to actively involve students, and to keep the children motivated and enthusiastic. The curriculum is taught through a variety of mediums such as, games, drama, songs, arts and crafts, workshops and holiday celebrations. Parents are regularly informed of their child’s progress and the lessons covered in his/her classes. Through our monthly class summary we give the parents an opportunity to be involved in their child’s Religious School experience.
Beginning with letter recognition, this program leads the students through phonetic decoding, reading comprehension and writing. Later, children will be introduced to conversational Hebrew.
Torah (Bible) and Jewish History
The children are introduced to the characters and stories of the Bible. They are given an overview of Jewish history starting with creation to the giving of the Torah to modern day Israel.
Hands-on lessons on each Jewish holiday will fill the calendar as we proceed from Rosh Hashanah and the High Holidays through the holiday of Shavuot. The students will have a deeper understanding of each holiday, traditions and customs. Chabad Religious School will also host holiday celebrations for our students and their families.
Adventuring Through Torah
Through Eli and Leah’s exciting ‘adventures’ to diverse places and times of Jewish history, the children are introduced to various Torah concepts through exciting, engaging lessons. This class will include weekly 'missions' and a website for our students to review and find out new information.
Arts and Crafts
Art projects are incorporated into our curriculum to add to the excitement for the upcoming holidays and Mitzvot. Our projects will have Jewish holiday and Mitzvot themes and will add a taste of Jewish life to the home.
We will offer a variety of extra curricular activities such as special guests, Friday night dinners, Holiday celebrations, and contests. These events will allow our students to experience Judaism in its entirety.
