JLC Programs, 2020-21 (COVID)

K - 1st Grade (without Hebrew lessons)
A new model for a different kind of year! An introduction to Jewish values, holidays, and Shabbat.  Students will enjoy singing, experiential Torah stories, exploring Israel, and learning the traditions and prayers of Shabbat.  Our multi-sensory approach keeps children moving and connecting with their friends and teachers in a positive and upbeat Jewish environment.

Social events and outings are driven by the interests of the students. Connecting Jewish living and ethics to the teenager's life and world is the prime goal STOM.
