Jewish Studies

Love of Learning: Talmud Torah

Beginning at six months old, children get 30 minutes of daily instruction in Jewish studies.  Judaics is taught in three ways: Holiday education – learning about the customs and celebrations of Jewish holidays; introduction of basic Torah stories – stories woven into the five books of the bible. Children learn about Noah and the Ark, Joseph and his coat of many colors, Abraham and Sarah, and the joy of welcoming others; introductory Hebrew – children learn their colors, numbers, letters, and shapes, as well as basic vocabulary in English and Hebrew as soon as they begin speaking. Rusty on your Hebrew or have no idea of what any of it means? Don’t worry, we have lots of resources on Hebrew you receive when you enroll as well as throughout the year. Learn as much or as little as you’d like.
