Learning & Engagement Center: Curriculum

We use the curriculum from The Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life (ISJL). This is a spiraled curriculum, in which students revisit key content areas with increased sophistication as they progress through the curriculum. It is continually updated.

The ten key content areas are: Community, Culture and Symbols, God, Hebrew and Prayer, Israel, Jewish History, Jewish Holidays, Jewish Lifecycle Events, Mitzvot and Jewish Values, and TaNaKh (Torah, Prophets, and Writings).

The curriculum is developmentally appropriate, nurturing students' Jewish identity, equipping students to live rich and meaningful lives. Each grade has thirty two-hour lessons including Hebrew. There are a variety of activities in each lesson that implement the idea that students have different learning styles. Visual, auditory and kinesthetic learning activities are used throughout each lesson.
