Y'ladim BaTeva focuses on:
Jewish values, such as caring for animals, honoring the elderly, caring for ourselves, our families, and our communities, and the Earth, and more;
Jewish values embedded in holidays;
basic observance of holidays;
some Hebrew, for reciting blessings for holidays and eating, and some key words;
Bible stories with an emphasis on Jewish values;
basic prayers for Shabbat; and
an optional and additional individual-paced Hebrew decoding and understanding program.
Y'ladim BaTeva time committment:
One Sunday morning per month for three hours, at an outdoor Metrowest location, with the option for being indoors part of the time in winter or bad weather;
Shabbat dinner hosted by one of the families,
morning outdoor service,
Shabbat afternoon Havdalah family program, or
Sunday holiday program.
Suggestions are provided for family or student activities at home between classes, including craft projects, suggestions for discussion, and ideas for family field trips.
HEBREW FEES The Hebrew decoding and prayer program is optional and additional. It meets 3-4 times per month online in groups of 1-3 for grades 2-5 only. The cost is $25/session, divided by the number of children participating. (E.g., if there are two children in a class, it is $12.50/child.)
