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.
