Curriculum Cycle

Our school operates on a four-year curriculum cycle, with the entire school focusing on one theme for the entire year. This model allows us to dive deeply into a theme and explore it in all of our programming throughout the year. Every week that Beit Midrash meets, each class will study the same topic at the appropriate level for their age group.

The four years of our cycle are:

Avodah עֲבוֹדָה (Jewish practice)   <----  We are here!

Torah תּוֹרָה (our central Jewish text)

Derekh Eretz דֶרֶךְ אֶרֶץ (Jewish values)

L'dor vador לְדוֹר וָדוֹר (Jewish history)


Avodah: Finding Meaning in Jewish Practice

This year as we study avodah, we aim to help students across all ages learn about and find meaning in Jewish practice, customs, rituals, and lifecycle events-- as celebrated by Jewish communities all over the country, around the world, and throughout history.

Our focus will be on avodah, but that doesn't mean that Torah, Jewish values, and Jewish history will be absent from our learning this year! Think of all these subjects like a four-strand braided challah, with a different strand rolled a little thicker each year.
