FROM DIRECTOR OF EDUCATION
Religious School 2015-16 update!
Introducing Our New Mitzvot and Ohr L’Olam Religious School Program
This year our 2nd-7th Grade Religious School sessions will be offered 2 Sundays a month, 1 Saturday a month and Tuesday afternoons. These additional Sunday experiences will allow our students to focus on different Mitzvot from the Torah each session with a learning component with teachers in the classroom, rotating to various stations, followed by school-wide Mitzvah experiences either in the building or on location. Through this interactive program our students will learn by “doing” God’s Mitzvot. In the classroom we will use art, drama, music and chevrutah study and we will combine that with carrying out Mitzvot in the community with confidence and pride. (Happily, the community activities will fulfill our students’ service learning requirement for their public school curriculum.) Possible community activities include: Making care packages for IDF soldiers, visiting with children in hospitals, singing and visiting with seniors, helping to clean up beaches and till gardens, helping to clothe and feed the hungry, and preparing school supplies for inner city students. Our goal is to instill our students with core Jewish values and Mitzvot and to show how these values add meaning and depth to both Jewish holidays and day-to-day Jewish life.
