Holidays

Jewish holiday learning is a highlight of our year! From tasting the different Rosh Hashana foods to learning how to build a Sukkah, from having a Tu B’Shvat Seder to a Purim party, from learning all about the story of the Jewish exodus from Egypt to participating in a real live Matza Bakery, Jewish holiday learning is practical, experiential, full of singing and always involves fascinating lessons that we can apply to our day to day lives.

Bereishit – The Story of Our Lives

Throughout the year, all classes will be following the C-kids Breishit Curriculum. This curriculum is tailored to different age levels, and gives our students a strong understanding of our history, our heritage and the values of the Jewish people. It is a fun curriculum, fill of educational activities and games, and gives the opportunity for those who are able to learn more to delve further into the text.
