Grades 5-6

JUDA Discovery (Grades 5-6) Learning Goals:

Master fluency in Hebrew reading by completing levels in Brown, Gray, and Black in Aleph Champ.

Demonstrate their knowledge of the Hebrew language by reading from Prayer books and writing in Hebrew.

In the Jewish Discovery course, students will not learn about theoretical, elusive concepts— they will learn about themselves.

The Jewish Discovery course explores the founding stories of the Jewish people to illuminate the stories of our own lives. In 10 lessons, the course addresses basic questions of Jewish identity and Jewish life, such as: Who am I? What does it mean that I am Jewish? Why do I sometimes struggle with doing the right thing?

Delve deep into the history, make-up, culture, and geography of the land of Israel. They will see up close what Israel is and be able to identify and connect with the land and its inhabitants.  

Learn about and celebrate the Jewish holidays as they come up on the calendar.

Share their knowledge and deepen their Jewish identity through community projects and service learning.
