Temple Emmanuel of Wakefield’s Hebrew school opens this September and will offer a stimulating and friendly environment where children can embrace their Jewish roots, regardless of their level of observance or affiliation.
Rabbi Greg Hersh of Temple Emmanuel will teach the following classes each week from September through June:
Ages 4-7: A Sunday morning class for children who are getting started with their Jewish education. An hour of introducing basic Jewish prayers and Hebrew and English songs, along with holiday and Torah-themed activities.
Ages 8-13: Ninety minutes every Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon for students who are building upon their foundational Jewish education and are interested in becoming a bar or bat mitzvah.
Bar/bat mitzvah age: Students ages 12-13 are encouraged to attend a second class each week with the Rabbi to focus on bar and bat mitzvah preparation.
“Jewish learning is important, interesting, and intimately tied to our personal growth and communal future,” said Rabbi Greg. “Temple Emmanuel’s Hebrew school is a way for children to create new experiences and relationships with their Jewish identity so that they will learn it, live it, and care for it.”
