Our kids are our life. One of the most important things we can do for them is bring a deep sense of the spiritual richness of Jewish tradition. Our weekly Beit Midrash class is taught in a lively and interactive fashion, allowing the children to be exposed to a few different topic areas each week to build their knowledge and understanding.
Beit HaShofar has developed a new weekday Children's Cheder (Hebrew/Religious School) which will replace our previous educational offering.
This class will be taught in a lively and interactive fashion, allowing the children to be exposed to a few different topic areas each week to build their knowledge and understanding. The goals of this class are:
to provide an overview of the Tenakh, helping children to become familiar with biblical books, people, and the parashot on a level to which they can relate
to develop a knowledge and love of the Jewish holidays, ceremonies, and traditions
to learn basic Hebrew (block letters, nikkud, reading, vocabulary)
to infuse the berachot(blessings) into the daily lives of the children through practice and by showing their meaning and value
to teach the middot (character traits) that will help them to live ethical lives, based on Pirkei Avot, stories and other teaching of our rabbis, and teachings of Messiah Yeshua through the Besorot(Gospels)
to give better understanding about ancient Yisrael and modern day Yisrael through activities and reading
