2nd Grade

This year is dedicated to an in-depth look at the historical roots and modern function of the synagogue, Jewish values and how they might apply to everyday living, and an introduction to Hebrew. At the end of the year, students will walk away with a deep and rich understanding of the origins of synagogue life and a historical knowledge of the dynamic nature of synagogues, since its earliest antecedents in time, the First and Second Temples. Second graders participate in an exciting research project on a Jewish community/synagogue, which they present to the class. They take much pride in this project-based learning opportunity that serves as a culmination to much of their learning. Our studies are enriched by a trip to the Jewish Museum in NYC, Israeli dancing, singing, art and a Hebrew sports program. Once throughout the year, our second grade families participate in family education held on a Sunday morning, and our second grade students help to lead a service at one of the First Friday Shabbat Services.
