2021-22 OLAM CHESED online PROGRAM 5782

Exciting news! Olam Chesed is now available on Sundays in Montpelier at Beth Jacob Synagogue.
 
Olam Chesed meets  for two hours of a dynamic multi-age program including community-building, prayer with Rabbi David, exploration of Jewish Life, and project-based learning.  Families can choose either Wednesdays at JCOGS from 4-6pm or Sundays at Beth Jacob from 9:30-11:30.  The curriculum is the same. 
 
Hebrew  will be offered in online pods of 2-4 students assigned by level and age and scheduled by the Hebrew teacher for an additional 15-20 minute focused class.  Pods will be mix JCOGS and BJS students together.
 
Our theme this year is shalom (building on the previous years’ themes of holiness, blessing, and mitzvah). Our Torah stories this year are Moses and pirkei avot.
 
Contact Beth Liberman, director education for more information. We would be delighted for your child/ren to join us for a trial class.
