Dalet (Gr.4)

Coordinator: Alicia McGee
Teachers: Gail Maurer, Ros Shamash, Alicia McGee and Josh Clark

Grade 4 students strengthen their connections to their religious school community and Jewish identity as they learn about prophets  and hone their Hebrew skills.  Our students will learn about the role prophets play in religion and the messages that are at the forefront of Reform Judaism.  They will study the differences between historical (those entering Israel) and literary prophets (focus on writings, speeches and poems).  Students will explore their own connection to prophets and be encouraged to understand their responsibility to others.   In addition, students will gain a new perspective on Jewish holidays and explore traditions at home and within Reform Judaism.  They will be able to bring these insights home to help families celebrate together.  A highlight of the 4th grade year is the Shabbaton during which 4th graders will come together for a day of learning and exploration. Students also participate in Hebrew groups and class time during which they learn the following prayers: Kiddush, Torah Blessings, Barchu, Shma and V’havtva. 

Grade 4 meets on Sundays (8:45am-10:45am or 11:00am-1:00pm) and Wednesdays (3:40-5:30).
