Youth Education

We have many exciting developments to share this year, including a new format and a new name (“KEnnections”) !

KEnnections K-7th Tuesday/Saturday Enrichment Program

 Both Tuesdays and Saturdays will now be open for K-7th grade. We will be switching to a new format for our program, now called KEnnections: students will have the opportunity to learn their Jewish content through different enrichment modes (i.e. art, music, drama, coding, cooking, etc.). There will be 2-3 options per grade groupings each trimester, and students will have the ability to select which class they would like to take. The curricular content is still the main focus—this is simply a way to add value, enjoyment, and hopefully help students internalize and retain what they are learning. Our Hebrew curriculum and classes will remain the same and will continue to be offered for 3rd-7th grade only.

Our Tuesday program will be held from 3:45pm – 6:45pm (including a family dinner).

Our Saturdays (9:30am – 12:15pm) will remain the same as last year, but with an added emphasis on our prayer studies. We are excited to be working with Rabbi Sarah Graff’s new Siddur (written for Camp Ramah), and there will be activities and dedicated time for learning both how to recite the prayers as well as the meaning behind them.

First Fridays

This year, we will continue to build community and expand our students’ education on Shabbat. First Fridays take the place of Shabbat morning programming by offering a different Shabbat experience. Students and families are asked to join us once a month for these special programs. 

Last year’s First Friday themes included Jurassic Shabbat, Legoland Shabbat, and South American Safari Shabbat, among others. Join us for a creative, meaningful family-friendly celebration of Shabbat!

Kadinkers for 4th/5th Grade, and Shabbat Schmooze for K-3rd Grade

 Building community and creating friendships is a big part of the educational process. With this in mind, we have two annual programs for both our 4th and 5th graders as well as our K-3rd graders. Kadinkers is the name for our 4th and 5th grade social group that meets once in the Fall and once in the Spring for a fun outing
