Religious School                                   

As the V’ahavta says, one of our most important responsibilities is to teach our tradition to our children.  Our Religious School staff take their mission seriously and fulfill it with diligence and love.  Students in Grades 3-7 begin each class with prayer (tefilah) for parents and students.  Students are immersed in Jewish learning through art, music, cooking, and formal classes.

 

Confirmation Class                                    

Students Grades 8 & 9 are invited to join our Confirmation Class.  

Following Bar and Bat Mitzvah, our students put their Jewish learning into action in the community. They discuss Jewish perspectives on local and global issues with Rabbi Luna in monthly meetings. Then, working with volunteer organizations, they endeavor to repair a small part of our world. The curriculum has included:

1.    Gulf Coast Humane Society : Tzaar Ba'alei Chayim- Respecting all creatures

2.    Six Mile Slough- Jewish Nature Adventure: Bal Taschit- Protecting our Environment

3.    Harry Chapin Food Bank

4.    Food insecurity shopping exercise at Publix grocery store and Harry Chapin Food Bank: Al Taamod al Dam Reicha- Do not be passive in the face of need.

5.    Touring Immokalee with Coalition of Immokalee Workers & Learning about the Fair Food Program: K'vod HaPoel- Dignity of Workers

6.    Healthy relationships- A speaker from ACT (Abuse, Counseling and Treatment shelter) - K'vod haBriot- Respect for the Dignity and Integrity of Each Person

 

Hebrew Chai                                                 

Jewish learning and identity continue after b'nai mitzvah and confirmation. Students grades 10-12 continue their Jewish journey through Hebrew Chai where they have the time and space to meet with Rabbi Luna once a month over pizza to talk about how Judaism informs and shapes their lives.
