Ages 9-13 will meet Sundays from 9:30am-12pm AND Fridays from 4-6pm including Mini Minyan where students will help lead services for the little ones.  Mini Minyan is a wonderful way to introduce Shabbat to our littlest learners and their families, all ages are welcome to attend.

CURRICULUM

Masa will be filled with Joyful Jewish experiences, including song, dance, art, food, field trips, and more!  We will proudly offer the Shalom Learning program, which includes a Values Curriculum and a Hebrew Curriculum.   The values-based curriculum explores various Jewish values and their relevance in our everyday lives.  Students will learn to use Jewish sources to make responsible decisions and build positive relationships.  Using the Hebrew Curriculum, we will teach your children to read Hebrew, chant prayers, and understand their meaning.  At home, your child will be able to log into the Shalom Learning portal to practice!
