Students in grade six participate in a program colloquially named “The Box” Curriculum. The Box teaches students the values which Aaron the High Priest is described as possessing. It is a student driven learning experience based on Pirkei Avot, the wisdom of our forebearers. It involves watching short video clips, solving problems (like an escape room), creating reflection videos as well as doing presentations. Students will come to understand Jewish Values on ways to make peace between one another, what it means to become “closer to Torah”, how to show love to all humankind and understand how to behave like Aaron. Students also continue to work towards learning the prayers of the Shabbat morning service during dedicated time each week as well as through tefillah participation. Sixth graders will review the prayers learned in fifth grade and will learn the Torah Blessings, Haftarah blessings and the Torah service.
