JFLL Weekday Classes, Tuesdays 4-6 PM
Each JFLL weekday session consists of three elements:
We begin each session in community as all students gather for an engaging opening experience, which could be an Israeli hip hop video, a story, or a hands-on group project.
The Opening Assembly serves as a set induction for the day's lessons and is an opportunity for kids of all ages to bond through shared experience.
Through the lens of the synagogue-wide theme of the year, students engage in learning through art, drama, music, creative writing, debates, group projects and more. We favor an interactive learning model, so that classroom activities are more like camp than school.
Using the Hevruta method of study, students of similar skill sets and learning styles work in pairs or small groups, at their own pace. Students in 4th-7th grades apply their reading skills to learn Tefilah (prayer) and the basic vocabulary essential to Jewish literacy.
