K-12 LEARNING PROGRAM

In our Religious School, we aim to expand what is taught in supplementary Jewish education to include deep and significant explorations of self and of others through the lens of Character Strengths. Our program marries the values of deepening who we are as human beings with living full and rich Jewish lives. We have created a new Judaic Studies curriculum that weaves together the worlds of Jewish wisdom, faith, spirituality and positive psychology. 

Our goal is to utilize a strengths-based philosophy to build an enduring culture of flourishing, well-being, and confidence through dynamic and meaningful experiences that connect the wisdom of Jewish tradition, the power of community and the best in ourselves to impact the world. Our strengths-based community will nurture the minds and souls of its members through the use of integrated curricula, community engagement opportunities, relationship-building, and personal quests for spiritual well-being. With an emphasis on flourishing, our model will equip our students and parents with an understanding of themselves and their Judaism that is rooted in strengths.

K-2 Learning and Engagement

Students in K-2nd Grade can choose between Sunday mornings from 9:30-11:00 am or Tuesday afternoons from 4:15-5:30 pm. There is also an option to extend their learning time on Sunday mornings from 9:30-11:45 am or Tuesday afternoons from 4:15-6:30 pm.

3rd-6th Grade Learning and Engagement

Students in 3rd-6th Grade will have the option to learn either on Sunday mornings from 9:30-11:45 am or Tuesday afternoons from 4:15-6:30 pm. 

Please be reminded that it is our expectation that all students are enrolled in and attending Religious School as early as possible, and no later than 3rd grade.  

Throughout these years of Religious School, they will develop skills such as reading and decoding Hebrew letters, learning to chant prayers and melodies, and generally connect to their Jewish identities. These skills will be critical throughout their Jewish lives and in particular, as they prepare to become Jewish adults.  

7th-12th Grade Teen Learning and Engagement

Teens in 7th Grade will have the opportunity to learn either on Tuesday evenings or Thursday evenings. 7th Grade students who attend on Tuesday evenings will have the opportunity to attend on Tuesdays from 4:15-5 before their class.

Teens in 8th-12th Grade will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of learning and engagement opportunities.

Teens who are interested may participate in the Madrichim Program:

What are madrichim? Madrichim are leaders. They are our “teachers' assistants”. We offer a seminar program to prepare our madrichim to be leaders. Our program provides the madrichim with training and experience that often leads to rewarding part time work after they leave TBJ. Participation in this program gives you an opportunity to serve your school community. Our goal is for our madrichim to get the chance to grow as leaders of the TBJ community.
