Pre-K Workshops

Pre-K Workshops - Saturday mornings, ages 3-5

 
Our Pre-K workshops gently introduce children to the Jewish holidays and Jewish values with song, dance, drama, and art.  Modern Hebrew terms and Israeli children's songs are introduced throughout the program. 
Themed courses for preschoolers meet on Saturday mornings throughout the school year from 9-10:15. Parents can join their child for Tot Shabbat at 10:15 after the workshop or remain in the classroom if their child needs them.

"Time for Torah!"
At the end of spring we celebrate the harvest festival of Shavuot, which also is the holiday associated with the giving of the Torah at Mt. Sinai.  We'll tell and act out the story of Ruth, enjoy making and eating Shavuot treats, and make time for enjoying the spring outside.

Our day begins at 9am in the Sanctuary with the rest of our Bet Midrash youth and adult learners to sing some morning blessings, continues to the classroom for an hour long workshop, and ends with a half hour Tot Shabbat.
