Traditional Havurah Saturday afternoon programming is on pause due to COVID-19. Please check back as we hope to re-open in 2021.

Jewish Journeys is inviting first and second-grade students to participate in JJP offerings.For these students, we will be offering Our First Family: The Stories in the Book of Genesis as the “core” class. A number of sections will be offered throughout the week; please choose the one that best fits your child’s schedule. We will focus on the narratives and values of Genesis and participate in making our own Torah scrolls complete with illustrations of all different media. Each child will receive a materials box at the start of the semester filled with full materials that will be used each session for our Torah project. We are thrilled that Havurah Director, Gabriella Kula will be teaching.

Additionally, 1st and 2nd-grade children will receive twelve 30-minute online sessions through our Hebrew Homepage platform. Each child can choose to learn the Aleph-Bet and beginning decoding, or take our class called I Spy: Jewish Symbols designed especially for them. These are one-one-one experiences. Parents select a tutor on our booking site based on their child’s availability.

Lastly, first and second grade learners can also participate in one monthly Intensive which takes place four times/semester. We are thrilled to offer three choices: JBrick: Israel through LEGOS for Grade 1-3, Bubbie’s Kitchen for Grade 1-4, or Just, Just You Shall Make for Grade 1-3
