Judaic Studies

Judaic Studies is integrated into both our Hebrew curriculum and our General Studies curriculum. Our K-6 faculty collaborate to make connections between General Studies skills and content standards and Judaic Studies content. 

Topics covered during Judaic Studies include:

  • Torah stories and Parsha HaShavua (weekly Torah portion)
  • Jewish Values
  • Jewish History 
  • Shabbat, Rosh Chodesh and Holidays 
  • Prayers and their meanings
  • Jewish calendar
  • Israel - People, Food and Culture 
  • Tzedakah (charitable giving)
  • Tanakh navigation and understanding 

Throughout the school year, students take part in a weekly prayer service, engage in celebrations, and observe the Jewish holidays, often welcoming parents and other guests to participate. A highlight of the school week for all students is Kabbalat Shabbat on Friday afternoon with Shabbat blessings, Jewish music, and activities.
