CJL Grade 7
Kitah Zayin: Seventh Grade
Monday evenings from 6:15 pm to 8:00 pm and Wednesday afternoons from 4:00 pm to 5:45 pm
Relationship building is the cornerstone of the seventh grade experience. Our clergy and teachers really want to get to know each seventh grader because we understand that building relationships is vital to adolescent connection that can strengthen Jewish identity in a meaningful way.
On Wednesdays, Rabbi Gropper, Rabbi Frankel and Cantor Cooperman meet with seventh graders for engaging and camp inspired learning centered on Torah, prayer and acts of kindness. There is a service experience, social time and “chugim” (activities like yoga, Jewish cooking, ga-ga, art and other possibilities based on the interest of the learners.)
Our Monday night program led by teacher Jeffrey Siegel includes dinner and focuses on Hebrew prayer practice, J-Girls/J-Guys (gender-separate learning), values through the lens of the Holocaust and modern Israel.
