An overview of Seventh Grade

This year's subjects:
  • B'nei Mitzvah:  What's it all about? (this is our current topic)
  • Mitzvah project planning
  • Holocaust studies (this is our current topic)
  • Founding of the state of Israel
  • Ethical dilemmas for seventh graders
  • End of the year fun in the kitchen

Seventh graders have a service attendance requirement to help them prepare for their b'nei mitzvah services. All seventh graders are expected to attend 7 Friday night or Saturday morning Shabbat services during the school year.  Service attendance can help you complete your thirteen mitzvot.  Please be sure to log your dates!
Session 3 begins this week!
Due to instructor availability, we will have a change in schedule:  
5:30-6:30 Eating with holiness and justice with Cantor Jamie (we will learn about ethics of food, and we will eat!)
6:30-7:30 Your Jewish college search with Max

We will have a guest instructor during the winter for our "surprise" class with guest students from other local congregations.  
Here are the students signed up for each class.  Please contact Cantor Jamie if your child is not on the list or would like to switch sections:
