6th and 7th Grade

6th Grade:

All 6th grade students attend on Sunday mornings 9:00-11:00 a.m. for Hebrew School.  

Students have a choice of when to attend Religious School classes:

  • Immediately following their Sunday classes 11:15 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
  • OR Wednesday evenings, 5:30-7:30 p.m.

7th Grade:

All 7th graders meet on Wednesday evenings 5:30-7:30p.m. for Religious School

5:30-6:00 p.m. is a (per-ordered) pizza dinner.  Classes meet from 6:00-7:30 p.m.

7th grade includes both Hebrew and Religious school. The 7th grade curriculum focuses on different elective courses that rotate each quarter. We offer a diversity of classes on Jewish law, Reform Ideology, Comparative Religions,  Arts and Culture, Current Events with a Jewish Lens, Jewish Cooking, and Conversational Hebrew. There are also special events throughout the year, with speakers, hands-on projects and community building opportunities!

Paralleling this program is our Jr. Champy Youth Group for sixth through eighth graders. These groups meet outside of school on a regular basis outside of Hebrew and Religious School for fun events like sledding, Latke Top Chef, Temple lock-ins, and more.
