Congregation Kol Ami



This curriculum works on the idea that learning should be a sequential experience. Tuned by grade and the student’s level of maturity, material is introduced sequentially to develop a knowledge base about Jewish religious belief and practice, culture, history, and Hebrew. In the process of understanding, interpreting, and challenging the materials, Jewish identity and commitment will be enhanced. Note the emphasis on comfort in the Synagogue and the observance of Shabbat, which demands the full integration of the Hebrew and Judaic Studies elements of the curriculum. Rather than mere rote recitation of Shabbat prayers, each will be translated and the different sections of the service explained and made meaningful. Also, the concept of Tikkun Olam will play a significant role in the education of our young people.

This curriculum is built on a partnership between students, teachers, and parents. To be effective, the learning that occurs in the classroom must be encouraged and supplemented at home.
