Jewish Studies

Judaic classes include time devoted to the mastery of modern and traditional Jewish texts and the knowledge of Jewish history and culture from life cycle events to holidays. Our students are taught how to apply Jewish values and ethics to make good choices for their own behavior. The core laws of Loshon Hora which forbids gossip and making fun of or speaking badly about others are emphasized and the students engage in active discussions about how they can positively react to life situations where they encounter loshon hora.

Torah reading:

All children are encouraged to read the Parsha of the week from the Torah.  Even the very young read a line paired with an older child to assist in the reading. Our students lead local Shabbat services at Agudas Achim and are well attended by the community.
