2020-21 OLAM CHESED online PROGRAM 5781

This year looks a little different:
 
Olam Chesed meets  on Wednesdays from 4:00 -5:00 pm for a dynamic multi-age online program with  in-person  family programs—held outside and with strict COVID protocol—scheduled approximately once a month. Smaller pods of 2-4 students for Hebrew  will be assigned by level and age and scheduled by the Hebrew teacher for an additional 15-20 minute focused class outside of the Wednesday hour.
 
The one-hour whole  group program begins with 10-15 minutes of prayer and song with Rabbi David and then  moves to a robust  and creative Jewish life program which is then divided by age for project-based learning. Our theme this year is mitzvot (building on the previous years’ themes of holiness and blessing). Our Torah stories this year are Joseph and Moses.
 
Contact Beth Liberman, director of family and youth education for more information. We would be delighted for your child/ren to join us for a trial class.
