Seventh Grade

Our seventh-grade students are offered three core courses as well as a host of electives, which are designed to stimulate and challenge their intellect while furthering their Jewish understanding and identity.

  • Jewish Values – Through a variety of media including books, movies and music, students will explore Jewish principles such as lo levayeh, do not shame others, din v’rachameen, justice and mercy and nedilvut, or generosity. Students will discover the relevance these ethics have in their lives.
