We at Shir Tikvah are excited to offer a new program for children and families that will be creative, innovative and meaningful. Our goals will include:
Educate and prepare for the bar/bat mitzvah
Understand and practice Jewish values
Develop a knowledge of basic Jewish literacy.
Prepare for life as a Jew in the modern world.
The Shir Tikvah Sunday School has gotten off to a great start! In November we began thinking about tangible and intangible things that make up a Jewish home. We visited Risa and Lloyd Graff’s home to help us in this pursuit. We started the foundation for our “Shir Tikvah Home” with Jewish values. On December 8 and 15 we will continue to work on our “Home” and look at our names, both Hebrew and English, with a focus on Jewish naming ceremonies.
Shir Tikvah’s Hebrew School, taught by Carole Fefferman, covered the alefbet and continues working on prayers.
Both schools will revisit the Festival of Chanukkah.
