The theme for Kindergarten is “My Jewish Me.” Children learn about how we use “all of ourselves” in celebrating Jewish life. The study of Jewish holidays is a multi-sensory experience, filled with taste, music, learning, fragrance and joy. Each child creates a personal scrapbook, “I’ve Got That Jewish Feeling” as well as a family “Shabbat Box.” Hebrew learning is introduced in Kindergarten through Kashkesh, our immersive Hebrew learning program of Music, Art and Dance.
Kashkesh is our dynamic immersive Hebrew learning program designed to provide our youngest students (K-2) with an engaging and dynamic environment that focuses on building a beginning Hebrew vocabulary through music, art and dance. Through the guidance of our Kashkesh learning specialist, Candice Polner teaches art, Itamar Gov-Ari teaches music and Shmulik Gov-Ari teaches dance, the program provides project based and experiential learning to make Hebrew come alive for our kids and help them put meaning in context.
