Fall 2020 Planning: Fun, meaningful, and SAFE Jewish learning during our public health crisis

 

This unprecedented time calls for unprecedented creativity and flexibility, and we are ready for the challenge! Join us this fall for a combination of virtual and outdoor learning opportunities for children.

Given the quickly evolving public health situation, we are thinking and planning in blocks of 6-8 weeks. Here's what we are planning through the week of October 11 ...

 

  • For early elementary children, K-2, we are building an outdoor, nature-based Jewish learning program that can take place on Shabbat. If this seems unsafe at any point, of course, we will move virtual.
  • For our 3rd-7th graders, most of our gatherings in the first 6 weeks will be virtual. 
    • Each child will get to choose an elective track for Judaics, allowing them to lean into an activity they already love and building Jewish learning into modalities that work well online and in physically spaced environments. Most elective tracks will take place on Wednesday afternoons, but some may take place on Shabbat.
    • For 3rd-6th graders, Hebrew learning will take place through "micro-groups" of 2-3 students paired with a teacher for learning that can be tightly focused at their level. Each session will be 30 minutes long, and families can schedule them on Wednesday afternoons or Shabbat (and, if convenient for all involved, at other times as well).
    • But we miss you! We are putting together a calendar of small, outdoor gatherings on Shabbat afternoons and Sundays to support our sense of connection to one another. Stay tuned!
