2021-2022 Schedule, Faculty & Curriculum - Grades 3-7
Grades 3-7 meet two times per week for a total of 3½ hours per week. That gives us about 12 school days to educate your children to be functional Jews in the world. The overall objective of these grades is to provide our students with the knowledge, respect and love of elements of the Siddur, Hebrew language, Bible, History, Jewish rituals and a basic Jewish understanding of G-d. Prayer during weekday sessions and classroom discussions will be occasions to help students develop in their spiritual growth.
