Jewish Identity as a Synthesis of Hebrew, History and Torah-Based Values

Sixth Grade students love to “put the pieces together” and start to see a big picture behind learning components.
 


 

Our Grade Six sessions are divided into three small-group classes:

  1. Hebrew prayer reading, chanting and fluency.
  2. An overview of Jewish history from ancient times to the twentieth century.
  3. A survey of Jewish values in history and their relevance today.

Grade 6 students appreciate the sweep of Jewish history and focus on the Shtetl community of Eastern Europe, Jewish immigration, Judaism in the Diaspora, and the American Jewish experience. The students see themselves as competent leaders of prayer and worship, and as “teachers” for one another as well. Each Grade 6 student is assigned a different Jewish value and expected to research this value and creatively present his or her findings and interpretations to the class.
