JQuest B'Yachad

 

JQuest  focuses on individual meaning, is based on creativity and movement, and seeks to engage every child in exploring what the Jewish tradition is all about. Envisioned as a journey of guided learning and personal exploration, JQuest B’Yachad is rooted in three areas, which together plant the seeds for Jewish life:

Judaic Study: Students will work together, create learning experiences that generate individual meaning, explore their creative passions, and have experiential opportunities in the community to achieve grade-level curriculum goals with guidance from clergy and teachers.

Prayer and Holiday Study: Students will explore the foundations of regular Jewish life through regular participation in T’fillot (prayer) exploring both the fixed nature and the spiritual expression, as well as the foundations of holiday rituals in the home and synagogue.

Hebrew Study: Students will be introduced to the Hebrew language and Hebrew decoding (sounding out letters to form word sounds) based on age and stage of learning. They will focus on learning Hebrew from Sound to Print - gaining a strong aural basis, and then working in small groups to decode the Hebrew prayers.

We are committed to ensuring a positive experience for your family, providing support for all kinds of learners and welcoming all families seeking to raise a Jewish child.  We strive to ensure that KI is a Jewish organization committed to diversity, equity and inclusion.
