3rd-4th Grade

We meet students two days a week: on Sundays for Jewish studies and on either Tuesdays or Wednesdays for Hebrew studies.  Also, we invite families to join in a few times a year for events designed to build Jewish learning and family connections.  Students unable to attend Tuesday or Wednesday have a 3 hour Sunday option 9:00am-12:00pm. Please contact Dr. Goodman for more information.

Choices for the Year:

 

JEWISH STUDIES (FOR ALL)

3rd & 4th Grade Camp@NSCI-Sundays 9:00 am-11:00 am

What better way to make friends, hang out with teenage role models and experience the joy of Jewish learning? Every Sunday is Camp@NSCI, a nationally recognized program, which takes the best elements of camp and applies them to our setting. Campers spend time in their units around the “campfire” hearing stories from Torah, working with specialists and learning through a wide range of small and large group activities.

This two-year cycle connects campers’ stories to those of the Bible and the Jewish people. Learn the p’shat (simple, straightforward storyline) and drash (interpreting the text by asking and answering big questions.) One year, we focus on the stories in Genesis: the origins of the world and the Jewish people, and the other year explores Jewish history beginning with the experience of slavery and extending through the building of The Temple in Jerusalem.

 

HEBREW STUDIES (CHOOSE ONE)

3rd & 4th Grade Prayer Based Hebrew-Tuesdays or Wednesdays 4:15 pm-6:15 pm

Students learn the Hebrew alphabet, basic reading, and blessings. They participate in a combination of class time and electives related to holidays, prayers, and Israel through hands-on learning such as music, visual arts, games, sports, cooking, and technology.

3rd & 4th Grade Hebrew Plus-Tuesdays 4:15 pm-6:15 pm 

Do you want your child not only to read Hebrew, but to understand what it means? Can you imagine your child following commands in Hebrew to put a book on their head, spinning toward the door? In this class taught by native Hebrew speakers, we emphasize learning modern Hebrew as well as the Hebrew alphabet and Hebrew prayers. Students learn through active learning, using their bodies and all their senses. They participate in a combination of class time and electives related to holidays, prayers, and Israel through hands-on learning such as music, visual arts, games, sports, cooking, and technology.
