Responsibility for One Another as a Foundation of Jewish Life

Grade 5 students begin to use abstract thinking skills to differentiate between facts and opinions.
 

Our Grade 5 students discover the multi-faceted life-cycle moments of Jewish life – from cradle to grave. Using their own experiences as a starting point, students are introduced to the ways in which Jews have grown from childhood to adulthood to old age, and how each of these life-stages are Jewishly marked and observed. A comprehensive exploration of the Ten Commandments is used as an illustration of the ways in which Jewish interpretation has preserved the ancient texts but also allowed for creative approaches to Jewish practice through the ages. By the end of Grade 5, most students feel comfortable in the sanctuary and confidence in their ability to lead an entire Hebrew prayer service.
