Hebrew School 2.0
Elementary School
Elementary school learners can participate in our more traditional "Hebrew School 2.0" on Monday afternoons, studying Tanakh (Bible), Jewish history, culture and values, religious life and laws, prayer, skills for living Jewishly, Israel and Hebrew language. 3rd-5th grade learners will also attend our JSA Day (Jewish Science and Arts) on Wednesday afternoons, where they will engage in interdisciplinary Jewish learning, incorporating science and arts into our robust curriculum. Hebrew School 2.0 provides a comprehensive foundation of Jewish learning for our children.
Middle School
As they work towards becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, middle school learners can enroll in our Bnei Mitzvah Scholars program on Monday evenings, studying Hebrew language and literature while engaging with a wide range of Jewish subjects, including Tanakh (Bible), Mishnah and Gemara, Jewish History and Israel in Judaism for the Modern Mind (JAMM). Our Bnei Mitzvah Scholars will begin the evening with Poignant Pizza, learning about topics relevant to Jewish tweens with members of our community while eating dinner together.
High School
8th-12th grade students can enroll in our weekly Teens @OZ (T@OZ) program. Learners can participate in our Hebrew Language and Literature (HALLEL) course, which provides immersive Hebrew learning to students of all levels. Also offered is Judaism for the Modern Mind (JAMM) in which learners participate in semester-long college-style Judaic studies courses, engaging with thematic explorations of Jewish text, history and culture, and Israel. Learners of all backgrounds-public school, private school or day school-can participate in either program, or ideally, in both! In between JAMM and HALLEL, students will share a meal while exploring topics relevant to Jewish teens with members of our community.
Arts and Action
Middle school and high schools students can further their learning in our two Arts and Action four-week mini-courses offered on Wednesday evenings, which provide 6th-12th grade learners with opportunities to engage in various media through a Jewish lens, while also producing projects that work to better our world.
For the 2015-2016 school year, class meeting times are as follows:
Class Day Time
