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.

NEW: In 2018 Families are invited to send their children to monthly afternoon Youth Groups and 1 - 2 special K/1 family social events during the year.
