7th, 8th AND 9th GRADES

7th Grade- Sundays from 9:30-11:45 AM

7th Grade takes place on Sundays and is taught by Rabbi DePaolo. Focused on Middot and Mitzvot (values and sacred actions), this program provides students with the opportunity to apply Middot to their current lives and within the community through Action Days. 

Each Action Day ties to a Mitzvah that demonstrates a particular Middah in action, providing students with the opportunity to reinforce classroom learning by helping out first-hand in our community. 7th graders also attend a retreat in the beginning of the year where students form community, and make lasting friendships. 

Lastly, our students culminate their learning by hosting our school’s end of the year Tzedakah Fair, which is entirely run by our 7th grade students. It’s a transformative year in their lives and Jewish education!

7th Grade Prayer Class
Sundays 8:45-9:25 Before Judaica

In preparation for their B’nai Mitzvah celebrations,
our 7th graders have an opportunity to review the prayers
that they learned in their formal Hebrew

8th Grade- Every Other Tuesday from 5:00-7:30 PM

In joining the Tuesday night teen community, 8th graders attend twice a month on Tuesday evenings from 5:00-7:30 pm. Dinner and social time will be available from 5:00-5:30. At 5:30, students begin their core hour with Heather Rosenthal.

In this class, students take a deeper look at the Holocaust with a curriculum entitled, “Our History, Our Time”. Although the Holocaust happened in Europe in the mid-1900s, students learn that the human dynamics that gave life to it continue to exist today. Students engage deeply with the history in order to help ensure that we, as a Jewish people, do our part to never allow it again.

Our 8th graders will be helping lead our Yom HaShoah service, which is the day we remember those who were lost during the Holocaust, on April 12th, 2018.

9th Grade- Every Other Tuesday from 5:00-7:30 PM


9th graders attend twice a month on Tuesday evenings from 5:00- 7:30 pm. Dinner and social time will be available
from 5:00-5:30. At 5:30, students begin their core
hour with Rabbi DePaolo. During this time,
students discover the ancient wisdom of
Mussar, exploring self-defining traits and reflecting
with themselves and their peers on how these traits can enhance a happy and healthy life. 

At 6:30, students head to electives to learn about topics ranging from Jewish art to Jewish cooking, to debate  and ‘hot topics’, and yoga amongst others.
