We are so excited to welcome you and your kids back to Hevreh for another great year of learning,community, and fun. Whether you’re a continuing student in our confirmation class and Madrikhim programs, a first time Tiny Talmidim family, or something in between, we hope that coming to Hevreh will feel like coming home.
This year, each class will have its own special Yachad day of learning for parents and students together with the classroom teacher. Each class will have a unique learning goal, supported by a classroom learning experience led by the teacher, as well as a “special” (either cooking, music, or yoga). The overarching theme for the year is;
TO LIFE!: SHABBAT
Each grade will focus on a different value or sub-theme of Shabbat. The idea of “To Life” has a double meaning: first, how can we make Shabbat a part of our lives, and secondly, how can the rest and specialness of Shabbat improve our lives. Below is important information about the many exciting things happening over the next two months- we hope you’ll make note of these events and opportunities on your family calendar, and be in touch with any questions!
Warmly, The Education Team
