Sixth Grade


The major components of the Sixth Grade curriculum are Israel, Torah, the mitzvot connected to Jewish identity formation, and Hebrew. Students will begin to read text and suggest their own interpretations and explanations of holy texts. Through study and practice they will become more familiar with mitzvot such as: Jewish learning, k’vod habriyot (individual dignity), Ometz Lev (courage), anavah (humility), kehillah (community), tzedek (justice), peace, and freedom. Students will search for a personal understanding of how we are commanded to be God’s partners. The students will be introduced to men and women whose commitment to Jewish ideals has made them legendary. Students will continue to have “virtual encounters” with the Israeli students they met last year via Skype. In Hebrew the students will study the order of the service, review prayers previously learned and master the prayers necessary for B’nai Mitzvah.
