Registration for the UJC Religious School and Hebrew Department for September 2012 is in full swing.
The Sunday A.M. program is open to Preschool-Grade 6 and meets 9:00 A.M. –11:30 A.M. The High School Program grades 8 –10 meets 11:10A.M. – 1:00 P.M. on Sundays and includes brunch.
The pre-kindergarten class is offered to 3 - 4 year olds who participate in a creative Let’s Experience Judaism program. Under the direction of Anat Schneider, the program uses an experiential approach to the Jewish festivals, the synagogue and the Torah. The children use all five senses of sight, sound, taste, smell and touch to explore the entire synagogue, celebrate each of the festivals and begin their Torah studies. Membership in the synagogue is not required for pre-kindergarten.
K-6 classes have a variety of activities covering festivals, life cycle, Bible, Israel, and Jewish values. The High School curriculum includes exploring Judaism, comparative religions, Jewish history, customs and ceremonies. Local and out of town field trips, guest speakers and festival celebrations are an integral part of the program.
Mid-week Hebrew begins in Grade 2 with a highly successful Hebrew immersion program. Children from grades 2 – 6 meet one afternoon a week and Grade 7 meets only 2 weekday afternoons (not Sundays).
