Beit Noar Program for Grades K-5

Our Beit Noar (House of Youth) curriculum is designed to make Judaism accessible, exciting, meaningful, and fun.

The core components of our Beit Noar curriculum include Jewish text (Bible stories), Jewish values, G'milut Chasidim (Acts of Loving Kindness), sacred time (lifecycle and holidays, rituals, and mitzvot), the land of Israel, God, and Hebrew as the language of our people and our prayers. Students begin Hebrew School in the third grade.

We draw from multiple curricular sources including Shalom Learning, Bim Bam, and much more. 

Our Sunday morning program is described below. See links at the bottom of this page for other aspects of this program, including the Hebrew program, youth engagement activities, and opportunities for music and t'filah (prayer).

 

Sunday Morning Program

Our Sunday School curriculum is spiraled, meaning students will see the same topics throughout their school career, with each encounter increasing in complexity and reinforcing previous learning. See how the topics spiral below:
