Gesher Judaic Studies Program is based in Florida, but has moved to live online Zoom classes so students from all across the country can participate.
Learn all about the customs and laws of upcoming Jewish holidays, as well the meaning behind each one. When there is no upcoming holiday, we’ll delve into topics such as Shabbat, Birchat HaNehenin (Brachot on food), Tefilah, and the Hebrew months. Suitable for kids in grades K-3. A separate Dinim class, geared towards older students, is offered for kids in grades 4-6.
This class is for children who have learned Chumash before and can move at a quicker pace than Chumash 1. Students will gain comfort reading and translating multiple Pesukim at a time, and will review key skills learned in Chumash 1, such as breaking apart a word in Chumash into its component parts to translate it. The class will also introduce the children to Rashi. Students will learn how to identify Rashi’s question and answer. We will begin the year in the second half of Bereishit and will focus on one Perek each semester to work on these skills. Students will be mailed a workbook for class before the beginning of the year.
