K - Grade 2

Our K to 2nd graders discover the holidays, symbols and values of Judaism focusing on three primary concepts: Torah (learning), avodah (worship) and gemilut hasadim (acts of loving kindness) as well as the alef-bet and basic Hebrew words associated with the holidays and Jewish life.

The Ruach program seeks to excite and entice the young Jewish learner by:

  • Making Jewish friends
  • Creating Jewish art and music
  • Preparing & tasting Jewish foods
  • Learning Hebrew letters, words, and prayers  
  • Developing a lifelong love of Jewish learning
  • Beginning to build a strong Jewish identity
