KITAH GAN -KINDERGARTEN

Mitzvot I Can Do:

Jewish Ethics and Values

This program is designed to open the soul of a young child and inspire a lifelong love of Torah and its Mitzvot. We introduce the fundamentals of Judaism and the importance it places on kindness, sharing, friendship and a positive attitude through exploring all the Mitzvot different parts of our bodies can do. Mitzvot like Bikur Cholim- Visiting the sick, making Challah for Shabbat, and giving Tzedakah-Charity, are just a few examples.

My Aleph Bet Book
Children will be introduced to the Hebrew alphabet in fun and engaging way. Each child will get to create their very own Aleph Bet Rhyme Book.

Journey Through Torah:

The Book of Bereishit/Genesis

Over the course of the year, students journey through the stories and lessons of the first book of the Torah, Bereishit (Genesis). From the creation of the world to the flood, and from our forefather Avraham to Joseph and his colored coat, the Torah and its lessons are brought to life every week. The students learn through visuals, games, stories and songs, and each create a beautiful scrapbook that will be theirs to keep.

Introduction to the letters of the Aleph Bet

By reinforcing the Hebrew alphabet early and using a fully integrated curriculum of songs, art, and worksheets, our students leave the classroom recognizing and identifying the letters and sounds of the Aleph Bet.

The Book of Shemos/Exodus

Over the course of the year, students journey through the stories and lessons of the second book of the Torah, Shemot (Exodus).

The students learn through visuals, games, stories, drama and songs.

Jewish Heroes:

Portraits in Jewish Leadership

It is imperative for our youth to have role models with integrity, moral values and strong conviction. Thus, our curriculum on Jewish Heroes was launched to inspire our students with tales and lessons from famous leaders throughout our history from Moshe (Moses), the first Jewish Leader, to the prophet Daniel. Students learn through audio-visuals, flashcard storytelling, drama presentations and a hero workbook illustrating how the lessons learned can assist them in making decisions today.

Jewish Days:

A Journey Through the Jewish Calendar

From learning the names of the Jewish months, to discovering their joyous holidays and not-so-joyous days of mourning, the students gain insight into Jewish time. A weekly highlight includes collecting “Jewish Days” cards corresponding to dates on the Jewish calendar and storing them in their very own “Jewish Days” card albums.

Jewish Discovery course:
Bar & Bat Mitzvah Enrichment Program
In the Jewish Discovery course, students will learn about themselves. The course addresses basic questions of Jewish identity and Jewish life, such as: Who am I? What does it mean that I am Jewish? Why do I sometimes struggle with doing the right thing? We hope this course inspires and leads to continued and greater Jewish engagement after Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
