Seventh graders are continuing with their second unit rotation.  The three sections are the following:
Mitzvah Class with Ms. Lerner
Holocaust Studies with Ms.Gartner
Israel with Ms. Wilbur

Seventh graders have Table Talk Time every Thursday, where they enjoy pizza and discuss current events through a Jewish lens.

We start every session with tefilah and Torah study, where we discuss the weekly Torah portion .  We are just finishing our study of Genesis and will be moving on to Exodus in January. Ask your child about sibling rivalry in the Torah!

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.
