Core concepts

  • Experience how Jewish tradition and rituals are relevant in the 21st century
  • Hands-on, experiential learning through speakers, program and events
  • Rabbi Strom is in the classroom and active with the students
  • Learn about the Holocaust through video, films and discussion; hear from a Holocaust survivor
  • Realizing how reaching out to our wider world through acts of justice are a major responsibility of Jewish adults.
  • Familiarizing ourselves with assuming leadership roles in Jewish worship

Our 7th graders will be empowered throughout their Journey To Mitzvah both to imagine and fulfill meaningful tzedakah projects in their B’nai Mitzvah year.  There will be two B’nai Mitzvah Family Education Programs in the fall and families will make personalized silver-plated yads together with the students Hebrew name.  The students will have the opportunity to learn directly with Rabbi Strom in class and as the year progresses will be invited to do things with the older students, such as run the Purim Carnival and become an Education Intern with our younger students in class.


Skype Hebrew Tutoring & Hebrew Pods

Skype Hebrew tutoring will be offered to all 6th and 7th graders who opt in to the new Lomed B’Yachad (Learning Together) program. 

Weekly Skype tutoring will also be offered for an additional minimal fee to any CBY student who wants extra support and Hebrew tutoring in addition to what is taught at the JID program.

Hebrew Pods is a new way of teaching Hebrew that we will be piloting next year. The purpose is to create small groups of students who will meet together with a teacher for a shorter period of time. This will give us more time for JID learning and shorter, but more intense and personal Hebrew learning. All students in the JID program will be pulled out of the JID class for their Hebrew pod.
