When I think about experiential Jewish education, I see words come alive. I see community, connection and happiness. I see children talking, teens sharing and questions whirling through the air. That’s just one reason why I am very excited to be the new Director of Family Life at Nevei Kodesh.
At Nevei Kodesh, we have a welcoming and amazing community. It is dedicated to bringing Jewish education and experiences to life for families. Whether it’s camp day learning for Sukkot, our own ‘everyone-wins’ version of “Hanukkah: Chopped” or a project-based learning study on Ometz Lev, courage of the heart…it is meaningful.
Our Sunday morning and Tuesday afternoon programs are designed for children and teens to relate and embrace their own Jewish journeys. It is hands-down all about our students and their experiences. Whether your preschooler is learning through interactive Hebrew centers or your teen is teaching a social action lesson to 4th graders, every week is a new opportunity.
In the words of our beloved Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi: “God is always present. The question is, how present are we?” Let’s be present, this year at Nevei Kodesh Religious School, together. We’d love to have your child or teen involved. Learn more at: www.neveikodesh.org.
