Dear Parents of Students in Grades K-6,

I want to thank everyone who participated in our parent meetings, responded to our survey, and communicated with us regarding the best way to educate your children this fall. Your partnership is so critical as we work to navigate the uncertainties of this pandemic together.

While it was our intention to offer some amount of in-person instruction to our children as part of a hybrid model, we have come to the difficult conclusion that this is not feasible. The overwhelming majority of our parents indicated that they are not comfortable with the in-person option, and so we are going to move all instruction into the virtual space. Based on your feedback and ideas, we are going to make significant improvements to the plan we presented, which include longer virtual sessions, teacher office hours, and opportunities for outdoor experiences. Depending on the grade level, the program will include two hours of Zoom instruction on Sunday, 45 minutes of Hebrew during the week, assignments for asynchronous learning, a robust Shabbat Magic schedule, and special outdoor opportunities throughout the year. 

In the coming weeks, you can expect to receive more detailed information about the daily class schedule, class placement, a fall calendar, and the process for collecting textbooks and other materials to support child’s instruction. We will also be working with our teachers to ensure that each lesson is designed in a way that maximizes available technologies and utilizes appropriate social-emotional techniques.

I look forward to seeing you at our first session, on Sunday, September 13th, from 9:30 AM-11:30 AM. If you have not yet registered, I ask that you do so as quickly as possible so we can plan appropriately for this new year. As always, please be in touch if you have any questions of concerns.

Talmud Torah Religious School

 

B’nai Israel’s Talmud Torah Religious School is a dynamic, engaging and creative Jewish learning environment that incorporates the latest in educational practices. We especially focus on creating a social-emotional space where we recognize each student’s strengths and build a strong community.

Our students are active learners who create, explore, and are guided as they discover the relevance of Judaism in their lives. Our teachers are thoughtful, committed and caring who focus on a student-centered approach for learners with a variety of learning styles.

What are the goals we have for our Talmud Torah students?

  • To learn Jewish practices and observances for Shabbat, holidays, and every day
  • To gain a working knowledge of prayer Hebrew
  • To build a Jewish community of peers and families
  • To experience working together in an environment including project-based learning and experiential education
  • To be joyful in their Jewish practices and beliefs

 We look forward to learning with you!
