Hebrew School Curriculum
More than anything else, students at the Karp Family Hebrew School at Mishkan Torah develop a joyful, profound, and long-lasting connection to their Jewish community.  The school is a place where children learn to embrace the diversity that has been the history of the Jewish people; a place where it is recognized that there are so many different ways to be Jewish.   Through the arts, text study, and hands-on learning, students experience a wide range of what Judaism has to offer. They benefit from a wonderful classroom space, small class sizes, and committed teachers who are not just "hired help".

The well-rounded curriculum includes:            

    -- instruction in Jewish customs, Modern Hebrew, and  Liturgical Hebrew

    -- study and practice of Jewish Values outside of the classroom 

      -- music, visual arts, drama, and dance                                       

    -- a participatory look at Jewish History

    -- integration of technology

    -- Family Education Programs to involve all family members

    -- participation in the diverse Mishkan Torah Community 

Interfaith Families are welcome and numerous at the Karp Family School.
