The major components of the Third Grade curriculum are Torah, Israel, and Hebrew. The students will understand that there are five books in the Torah and have the opportunity to make personal connections to many of our foundational stories. They will be able to recognize holiday symbols and customs and explore different explanations of why we celebrate certain holidays. Third grade students are in their second year of formal Hebrew studies and will expand their prayer vocabulary to include morning blessings and the opening prayers of Shabbat evening and morning worship. The year culminates with the third graders leading a Friday night Shabbat Service.
