Grades K–7

This year, we’re offering two learning program options for grades K–7. BaDerech, meaning on our path, will engage students in grades K–7 in learning about the Jewish calendar year through specific chugim, modalities, including visual arts, science & technology, performing arts, cooking, and book club. BaBayit, meaning in the home, will inspire families to take a deep dive into bringing the Jewish holidays into their homes. Students can choose to participate in BaDerech, BaBayit, or both! All students in grades 4–6 will study Hebrew, and students in grades 6 & 7 will continue with B’Mitzvah preparation.

BaBayit, meaning in the home, will inspire families with younger children up to 3rd grade to take a deep dive into bringing Shabbat and the Jewish holidays into their homes while connecting deeply with other families and individuals. The program will be staffed by TBE’s clergy and full-time learning team and will be linked to our community holiday celebrations. BaBayit will include Shabbat and holiday gatherings, home observance, family activities, and dinner discussions.
