Each Sunday Fifth Graders focus on Hebrew prayers and Jewish culture. 5th graders participate in Modern Hebrew as well as small group learned to teach or review Hebrew letters, vowels, and fluency and help the students learn to fluently read their synagogue’s Hebrew prayer goals. They also participate in regular prayer services to become prayer leaders.
On Tuesdays our 5th grade JQuesters embark on a journey to explore Jewish immigration to America and Israel. Their first Quest will culminate in a presentation of their family’s immigration story. The second Quest will culminate in a JQuest B’Yachad Yom HaAtzmaut (Israeli Independence Day) presentation.
