The goal of the seventh-grade program is to break away from the typical classroom lecture style of teaching. The seventh-grade students will be active participants in learning while connecting more deeply with each other. This year we are offering something new and exciting for our seventh graders. We have four amazing educational field trips led by Tzedek America (tzedekamerica.org) a local non-profit organization. Our students will get an excellent hands-on experience in Social Justice which is an integral part of our program.
• Mensches (people of honor and integrity)
• Tzadikim (people of righteousness)
• Chachamim (people of Jewish wisdom)
• Jewish Identity
By instilling a connection to Jewish tradition, rituals, Torah, history, and Hebrew, we strengthen a student’s Jewish identity.
• Jewish Community
By making the temple a second home and building lasting friendships through meaningful conversation, engaging activities, retreats, youth group, travel to Israel, music, and art, we strengthen a student’s place in Jewish Community.
• Jewish Faith
By participating in the celebration of Shabbat and holidays, learning Jewish prayer and honest exploration of our faith, we strengthen a student’s sense of awe, wonder, and gratitude.
