The ISJL Education Curriculum is a spiraled curriculum, in which students revisit key content areas with increased sophistication as they progress through the curriculum. The ISJL is continually updating the curriculum not only to add content, but also to ensure it's in line with current educational best practices and ever-evolving pedagogical understanding.

The ten key content areas are: Community, Culture and Symbols, God, Hebrew and Prayer, Israel, Jewish History, Jewish Holidays, Jewish Lifecycle Events, Mitzvot and Jewish Values, and TaNaKh (Torah, Prophets, and Writings).

Community-Building

In addition to spending class time on core curricular topics, teachers place a strong emphasis on community-building throughout the year. Team building exercises, name games, and positive classroom management techniques are used to help students create friendships and feel connected in positive ways to their Jewish teachers and peers. Our favorite way to start class is with a quick share of “Joys & Oys” from the week!

T'filah (Prayer)

All students in Kindergarten and First grade begin by meeting their teacher in the sanctuary for an age-appropriate T'filah (prayer) service each Sunday from 9-9:20am before heading to class. Parents are always welcome to stay and participate in T'filah!

All students in Second - Fifth grade attend T'filah together at the end of class from 10:30-11am. Parents are always welcome to join from the back of the Sanctuary as to not distract the class dynamics.
