Grade seven students focus on discovering what it means to become a Bar or Bat Mitzvah – a man or woman in the Jewish community. Separated into three trimesters, the year focuses on tefillah preparation, an intensive course on Israel and a course on the Holocaust. Each “mini-course” encourages students to find their own connection to their heritage and identity as they begin to assume the role of adult. This year provides students with opportunities to answer questions such as: Who am I as a Jew? What does it mean to acknowledge my place in the history of the Jews? What is my history? What does it mean to have a homeland?
Dinner is included for all Grade 7 students.
