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.
Our schools are growing, just as the trees for Tu B’shevat! We now have 6 students. We braided our own tzitzit to help us remember to perform mitzvot. Todah rabah to Larry Cohan who helped hide the Mitzvah Scavenger Hunt clues!
On February 12th, our teachers visited the Illinois Holocaust Museum for a workshop sponsored by the Midwest JEA (Jewish Educators Assembly). We toured age-appropriate areas of the Museum for future field trips.
