YOUTH EDUCATION AT SHERITH ISRAEL

Providing students with Jewish tools for intentional living in community.

Skip to the forms

2018 is a year of change. We welcome Rabbi Abby Phelps who will transform our educational vision into reality. Rabbi Phelps begins her work on July 1. Rabbi Phelps is passionate about education and brings a wealth of creativity, energy, and wisdom. She will grow our vibrant community of learners into something new.

We are changing the name of our youth education program to Studio @ SherithIsrael.  A ‘studio’ is an open space, a creative environment where people find their own method of expression. Our studio will be a place of exploration and exposure to many ideas.

A deep sense of belonging and connection to the Jewish community begins at an early age…and engages the whole family. Since we know that fun Jewish learning is contagious, we want the whole family to get involved. We will be adding new opportunities for teen and family education. 

For our youth Sherith Israel is a home away from home. It is the place that they come to search for meaning in a complicated world. A joyful, accessible, relevant Judaism will guide them into adulthood.

Studio @ Sherithisrael will set them on this path.

 

Check out our intro year program, enroll without joining the synagogue for your first year (grades pre-school to 5th) for $1500. We know you'll love it so much you'll want to join the community.

 


STUDIO @ SHERITHISRAEL, SUNDAYS  9:15 AM–12:30 PM

In every age, we build community through the study and practice of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), Tzedakah (righteous giving), T’fillah (worship) and Torah, experiencing a wide range of study from text to history to Israel.

PRESCHOOL- Grade 5

Our students learn core values through age-level experiences including opportunities for family learning, worship and the arts. Introduction to spiritual Hebrew is an integral part of the learning, focusing on developing a working vocabulary of key Hebrew words and phrases through activities, music and study.

Grade 6

Students and parents study with our clergy throughout the year and with their teachers and classmates in traditional and non-traditional ways. This outstanding program guides families through a tour of the Torah, as well as the traditional mitzvot pertaining to and incumbent upon the child reaching this lifecycle milestone.

Grade 7 & 8

Students study Jewish ethics, spirituality, Holocaust and the modern state of Israel while learning to become Madrichim (classroom helpers) through a curriculum including principles of child development, lesson planning, and hands-on classroom experience. 

HIGH SCHOOL – FRIDAYS AND SUNDAYS

Grades 9–12

High School includes participation in social action, travel and learning promoting Kehilah Kedoshah - sacred community-  through group experiences. Our high school curriculum is student-centered and issue driven and teaches our teenagers to use Jewish values in their everyday lives.

Confirmation

We will be offering Confirmation again this year for any 10th-12th grade student who is interested. The Confirmation program will be part of our high school program. The Confirmation ceremony will take place on Shavuot (6/9/19).

MADRICHIM, TEEN LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

Teens who are interested in developing leadership skills by being guides for younger students receive structured training and take positions assisting teachers on Sunday mornings. The program enables teens to build their resumes, serve as role models, gain valuable teaching skills, and deepen their commitment to Jewish life.
