Temple B’nai Abraham Jewish Learning Program 2017-2018Newly Remodeled, Child-Focused, Individualized
Dear JLP Families,
We are excited to introduce a new scheduling design for the 2017-18 school year. The new program was developed after much research and a great deal of thought. During this extended work, two principal goals for our children emerged:
Provide as much individualized help learning to read Hebrew as possible.
Create a sacred space for our children to learn the importance and beauty of Jewish connection to history, ritual, one another, and the future.
As you read through the attached material, you will see that the greatest emphasis in the Mercaz Ivrit (Hebrew) classes is ensuring that each child is instructed in a small, individualized and dedicated learning environment. Additionally, we know that the Shoreshim program (Roots-Judaics and Prayer) will provide our children with the necessary foundation to become connected to the Jewish world throughout their lives.
Now more than ever in our contemporary Jewish journey, it is important for us to teach our children in significant ways and help them see that commitment to our shared history and purpose is essential to the future of our people.
We believe that you will find this program offers extreme flexibility while maximizing our teaching time and potential. We invite any questions you may have, but encourage you to thoroughly read through ALL of the material. We know you will find that this program first, offers our families extreme flexibility , while maximizing our teaching time and potential.
