Makom at SAJ Grades K - 3

Grades K and 1

Students attend one day a week

Shabbat (Saturday), 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

We explore and expand our understanding of the world, ourselves and our roles through Jewish discovery.  Hebrew letters and words come alive through art and music. We engage in questions about our world through Jewish stories from Torah and various other ancient Jewish sources in an age-appropriate, dramatic story-telling and re-telling. Jewish holidays, first blessings, and prayers are introduced with an emphasis on experiences through our 4 senses.

 

Grades 2 and 3

Students attend one day a week

Shabbat (Saturday), 10:30 AM – 12:30 PM

This program is intended to help our second and third graders further connect to Jewish life and culture. In 2nd/3rd grade we read Hebrew in text or through art and games, site words are introduced more regularly in this class. We deepen our understanding of tefilla/prayer and connection. 

We study Torah and other ancient Jewish stories as well as Jewish holiday narratives through the lens of family relationships with an emphasis on Torah from Genesis through Exodus. Introduction and synthesis of our learning occurs through various modalities: art, drama, music, discussion, and writing.
