Curriculum Overview

Bereishit continued / Jewish Family Tree: Picking up roughly where the class left off in Kita Gimel, this class continues studying the book of Genesis, beginning with the story of Abraham and Sarah, and follows the stories of their children and grandchildren. The class explores the variety of characters in the family tree and their diverse experiences of God. Learning midrash deepens the students’ experience of Jewish narrative process and the students engage in creative projects through drama, art or writing.
