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".
Karp Family School students will be joining the congregation on Saturday, May 30 for the zoom Shabbat/Shavu'ot service. KFS is then off for the summer.
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
-- participation in the diverse Mishkan Torah Community
Interfaith Families are welcome and numerous at the Karp Family School.
