5783 Religious School Calender

The Dorshei Tzedek School brings our community’s core values to life. We are a supplemental education program that offers classes for Pre-K through 7th graders. Together, we strive to build a community where parents and children can find meaning and connection to our ancient and ever-evolving tradition. 

Sunday Religious School is located at Cabot Elementary in Newton and Weekday Religous School is located at Dorshei Tzedek (60 Highland St. West Newton). 

5783 (2022-2023) School Plan

Sundays 9:30-12 pm for Gan-Zayin (Grades K-7): 
We will meet in person at Cabot Elementary in Newton on Sundays from 9:30 am-12 pm for Gan (K)-Kitah Zayin (7th grade). Each week we will begin together as a community and then students will split up by Kitah (grade level) to explore Jewish holidays, Torah, Jewish culture, and Jewish history. There will be opportunities for family and parent learning throughout the year.

Weekday Religious School for Kitot Gimel-Vav: 
This year we are excited to continue our small group and one-on-one approach to Hebrew and Tefillah (prayer) learning on Zoom and in person, now with more weekday options for our older students. Once a month students will come together on-site for a Rosh Chodesh (new Hebrew month) celebration that will include a student-led Maariv (evening service) and electives.

Kitah Gimel (3rd grade): Students will meet in small groups at Dorshei Tzedek for a one hour Hebrew class on Tuesdays. Students will be placed in either a 4-5 pm class or 5:15-6:15 pm class. The Gimel Hebrew curriculum is centered on learning the Hebrew alphabet and decoding. This important year serves as a foundation for all future Hebrew and Tefillah (prayer) learning. The small group creates a dynamic and engaging learning environment for our newest Hebrew learners. 

Kitot Dalet - Vav (4th-6th grade): Students will have one-on-one or small group Tefillah (prayer) tutoring online or in-person at Dorshei Tzedek according to learning needs. In person tutoring will be on Tuesdays, and online tutoring will be offered throughout the week. Tutors will help students learn to lead a prayer service, work on their Hebrew decoding and grammar skills, and explore the meaning of each prayer.
