 Here is what a typical Sunday school day looks like.   

  • Ma’agal (Circle):  Families are encouraged to stay for this part of the day when we build community by engaging in social games, learning songs and prayers and stories, practicing meditations, and exploring the meaning and traditions of holidays.  We divide the year into two or three basic units, going as deeply into our topics as possible.  Our units might include holidays and rituals, ethics, culture and Torah learning.
  • Hebrew Classes: After Opening Circle, we break into Hebrew groups based on age and level of understanding.  
    • Kitah Aleph (pre K-1) explores beginning Hebrew literacy and Jewish ritual through story, song, play and creative arts. [Children come for this hour as a stand-alone program]
    • Kitah Bet (grades 2-4) enriches basic Hebrew literacy through reading/writing/listening, games, engaging activities and introduction to prayer and ritual
    • Kitah Gimmel (grades 5-7) deepens Hebrew knowledge and application as well as spiritual exploration in preparation for Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremonies which students build along with their teachers.

Y’tzira (Creativity): This part of our day is focused on creativity and expression in Jewish life and culture.   Often we work on long-term projects that connect to the theme of Ma’agal.
