Jewish Knowledge/ Jewish History

Middle School Jewish Knowledge & Jewish History

The Jewish Knowledge class focuses on three important parts of Jewish study:  1) Navi (or prophets) 2) Jewish Holidays and laws 3) Weekly Torah Portion. 

Navi is the study of Jewish history beginning after the Five Books of Moshe. Students are exposed to the values and lessons we learn together from the people of our past. Stories are taught in depth so students understand the timeline of events, significance to Jewish people and take-home messages gleaned. Jewish holidays explore the various laws and customs associated with each holiday, as well as, general understanding and reasoning behind the holiday. The weekly Torah portion is a summary of what Jews read in Synagogue the upcoming Shabbat and lessons found therein.

Jewish knowledge provides a large scope of information and ideas to strengthen your child's connection to the Jewish people and Jewish calendar year.
