Educational Approach

Our program for children ages two through thirteen is held on Sundays, from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM.

We approach learning through hands-on, collaborative projects that integrate arts, language, and core themes, with a focus on the Yiddish-speaking culture of Eastern and Central Europe. 

In every class, you will find students creating artwork, plays and music; interpreting Jewish texts; celebrating holidays in ways that thoughtfully blend creativity and tradition; and becoming activists with an understanding of how Jewish history and ethics connect to progressive values. 

The program culminates in a cultural bar/bat mitzvah in which each graduating student engages in social action and community service work, explores family history, and develops an intellectual project that is presented at the collective ceremony.
