Yom Shishi, 28 Heshvan 5778

RSKB-StudentsReligious School

The GSJC provides religious school education for Pre-K through Grade 7 students.  All grades meet on Saturday mornings with grades 4 through 7 also meeting on Wednesdays.

The Religious School will begin using the Union for Reform Judaism’s Chai Curriculum during the 5774 (2013-14) school year. This curriculum teaches core Jewish values as the focus of each of the lessons.

The structure of the Chai Curriculum is conducive to serving multi-age groups, as it is based on levels rather than grades.  This leveling allows for easily combining of grades while providing a comprehensive education for all students. The program is divided into three strands that cover these significant areas of Jewish learning: Torah, Avodah (prayer) and G’milut Chasadim (acts of loving kindness). The versatile structure of Chai enables the use of a variety of teaching approaches. When using all strands of the curriculum, students receive a comprehensive overview of Jewish scriptures and writings, worship and social action. (Description taken from URJ materials).
