What You will need for class

 

Saturday morning

Elementary students meet Saturday mornings from 9:30-11:00 am. Parents join their children for Family T’filah from 9:30-10:00 am. For the rest of the morning, students are divided camp-style into three different units:

  • Tzofim (Scouts): Grades K & 1
  • Bonim (Builders): Grades 2 & 3
  • Olim (Ascendants): Grades 4 & 5

The curriculum is entirely experiential and revolves around themes that tie in holiday learning and Jewish ideas and values. Saturday also includes our Hebrew Through Movement curriculum, an interactive and vibrant way for our kids to learn the language of the Jewish people.

 

Wednesday afternoon

 

On Wednesday afternoons, elementary students participate in Specialty Workshops, allowing them to explore Judaism through the lenses of other areas of interest. Each student commits to one Workshop, though they may opt into a second one if they wish!

Art אומנות

The jLAB Art Workshop allows students to critically think about the intersection of visual art and Judaism. Students will explore Jewish themes and ideas through drawing, painting, sculpture, and other forms of art. They will derive inspiration from pieces by Jewish artists, and will use the jLAB curricular themes to design and execute unique works of Jewish art.

Cooking בישול

The jLAB Cooking Workshop nurtures a passion for Jewish food. Students will learn techniques to properly handle, store, and prepare each component of a recipe. They will gain an understanding of regional and cultural aspects of Jewish cuisine. Our young chefs will learn and sharpen skills in connecting curricular themes to food, work with proven recipes, and perhaps experiment with original creations.

Digital Media תקשורת

In the jLAB Digital Media Workshop, students have the opportunity to engage is aspects of production and storytelling such as character development, scriptwriting, directing, shooting, and editing. Digital Media provides a unique combination of technology and art in which students will learn to effectively realize Jewish themes and ideas through their artistic visions in film, photography, animation, and other forms of digital design. Through the project-based creation process, students will grow their skill set in exploring jLAB curricular themes through the fascinating world of digital media.

Hebrew עברית

Although Hebrew is infused throughout all of jLAB with the “Jewish Life Vocabulary” in our curriculum, the Hebrew Workshop allows for additional instruction in the language of the Jewish people for those students who opt for more. K-2 students will learn conversational Hebrew skills using songs, games, and fun activities. Our Grades 3 and 4 students will move on to introductory reading skills by focusing on sight reading of prayer vocabulary with a curriculum built around the prayer levels of Hebrew Through Movement. Grade 5 students will focus on decoding skills within a more traditional Hebrew learning format.

Science מדע

Scientific inquiry meets Judaism! jLAB students will explore science through a host of activities that complement and deepen their understanding of Judaism. They will learn the long history of the Jewish people’s contributions to science and build a strong connection to Israel as an incubator of innovation. The jLAB Science Workshop will foster curiosity in the context of Jewish values and community, all within the framework of our curricular themes.

Theatre תיאטרון

Our jLAB Theatre performers have the opportunity to explore elements such as character development, breath and vocal techniques, improvisational methods, comedic timing, and physical awareness – all within a Jewish context. Students will employ these elements through existing material and original productions, all connected to the jLAB curricular themes. Actors will focus on solo, duet, and group pieces, fusing movement and voice with key theatrical skills. Students may also have opportunities to review techniques in makeup, costume, and/or set design.
