The intermediate grade curriculum (3-7) builds on the primary curriculum, but places more emphasis on preparation for Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Students continue their Hebrew studies, learning prayer based vocabulary. Hebrew reading skills are emphasized so that students can participate fully and comfortably in the Shabbat and holiday services. Students discuss Torah portions in depth, learning about Jewish history, laws, moral and ethical teachings, and the significant contributions of the patriarchs, matriarchs, and other biblical heroes. Students celebrate holidays, reciting the blessings and prayers, using ritual objects correctly, singing holiday songs, preparing and eating holiday foods, and understanding the religious and historical importance of the celebration. They discuss life cycle events and their importance. Students learn about Israel’s history, government, geography, culture, politics, and significance to the Jewish people. Participation in synagogue social action projects reinforces the concepts of tzedakah, mitzvot, Gemilut Hasidim, and tikun olam.
