Teacher: Elisa Harrington Verb
In Kindergarten we develop our Jewish identity by celebrating Shabbat and the Jewish holidays, and being God’s partner with acts of loving kindness for our families, classmates, and community.We learn that God created the world, and that each of us has a bit of God inside. Jewish heroes and heroines teach us about being brave so we can do what is right. We say blessings, sing and dance, listen to stories, make up plays, and play games using Hebrew words. We explore Israel through interactive websites in the library and borrow books to read at home.
We come to monthly Tot Shabbat on Friday night and Saturday morning, or the monthly Family Worship Service and meet our friends in the synagogue.
Our parents have a closed Facebook group, Primary Years at Gates of Heaven, to keep us all connected.
