SHACHARIT Grades K - 2
Our education program for Grades K - 2 takes place on Sunday mornings from 9:30 a.m. - noon. SHACHARIT truly comes alive as we introduce our students and their families to our vibrant Temple Shalom community and the joys of Jewish celebration.
Participants enjoy Family T'filah (prayer) followed by activity based learning by grade. Our qualified and enthusiastic educators joyfully guide our youngest students with hands-on activities, music, stories, art, and play.
Our students are led in song by our spirited songleaders who introduce lively Jewish music sung at many of the URJ summer camps. In addition, students participate in SHACHARIT-wide events including Chanukah celebrations, PurimPalooza, Family Mitzvah Day and our Tzedakah Expo.
We are deeply committed to making Jewish learning an inclusive experience for all children and work to hire and train a passionate group of educators and Madrichim (Teen classroom assistants).
