The PreK - 6th Grade Program
Pre-K through Second Grade students explore Judaism through multi-sensory experiences with their peers in a grade-level class*. Third - sixth grade students have Hebrew in the morning, followed by T’fillah (a brief prayer service) with our clergy. Then each grade has a different chug (arts- or camp-style learning session). Classes rotate their chug each quarter, so over the course of the year, every grade has every chug.
7th Grade B’nai Mitzvah Discovery Class
Seventh graders prepare for their B’nai mitzvah by learning and doing tikkun olam (repairing the world/social justice) and g’milut chasadim (acts of loving-kindness). Students adopt at least one social action project a month, including drives and field trips. We also learn about the Holocaust and talk about the B’nei Mitzvah experience. This is an engaging class full of activities and community building, and is both fun and meaningful for the students.
All 8th - 12th graders are invited to join TBY clergy for a year of Jewish exploration, culminating in a Confirmation ceremony for 10th - 12th graders. Build friendships and get to know our amazing rabbis and cantor, eat lunch and hang out with friends, and dive into the big questions of what it means to be a human being, a teen, and a Jew. It’s topical, it’s relevant and it’s free!
