Kitah Alef (1st)
Kitah Alef (1st Grade) students strengthen their recognition of the letters and sounds of the Hebrew Alef-Bet. Symbols and landmarks of Israel become familiar to our young children and are the start of a growing connection that is advanced throughout their educational experience. A classmate's or teacher's trip to Israel is cause for celebration! The link between beloved Bible stories and mitzvot plants the seeds to unfolding the long, loving relationship between God and the Jewish people. Our 1st graders learn simple blessings and home observance of the chagim and parents participate with their children in the "Joy of Shabbat" program to create an 'all you need for Shabbat' kit to use at home.
