CHAI FIVE - Youth Education Program (K-7th)

Our K-7 program is divided into five parts including Mitzvah Corps, Family Learning, Arts Education, Hebrew and Jewish Literacy.  

  • Mitzvah Corps is a service learning model where children learn, do and reflect on one relevant social justice issue each year.
  • Family Learning is where families choose a topic to take a deep dive into learning with other families who choose the same topic.
  • Arts-based Education is where children have Jewish art experiences with local artists.  
  • Hebrew is offered online with a small group tutoring model.
  • My Jewish Toolkit is where core curriculum and basic Jewish literacy are taught in a camp-like model as tools in a "Jewish Toolkit" that children add to each year.

We are an inclusive community and welcome students from diverse backgrounds including those from multicultural and interfaith families. 

We welcome students of all backgrounds and abilities. We do our best to accommodate special needs.

We offer innovative and engaging family and holiday programming including Mitzvah Day, Purim Carnival and Celebration, Shabbat B'Yachad and Reconstructing Judaism Family Learning Days.

 

B'nai Mitzvah

Students in the B'nai Mitzvah program feel empowered, proud, and ready to take on the responsibility of improving our world.

The B'nai Mitzvah process is a chance for each child to develop their own skill set in Hebrew, reading, writing, and persuasive speaking.

Additionally, we believe in celebrating the special talents of all children. Our community is small enough to allow each child to shine and demonstrate their developing Jewish wisdom in their own way.

When a family comes to B'nai Havurah, the rabbi and family create a unique plan to develop the child's Jewish learning and skill set. Why is this unique experience so important? At B'nai Havurah, when a young person becomes the son or daughter of the commandment this means taking on responsibility for fixing what is wrong in the world. Our task includes helping the child discover what is at their core, in terms of justice, and then helping them develop a mitzvah project.

Story Adventure Club - Infants to Preschool

The Story Adventure Club uses stories as a jumping-off point for our adventures in Jewish learning.  This program is for families with children 5 and under.  We go on field trips and make stories come to life during all of our adventures.  

Story Adventure Club takes place monthly on Sunday mornings from 10:30 am-12:00 pm. Click here to register for one adventure at a time!
