The word makom means “place”, and we are developing an understanding that every place can be a Jewish place. Every class is centered around the following components:
Blessings: to learn, unpack, appreciate
Middot: our soul traits, which we apply to real life situations
Torah stories: examining and questioning the story behind the story; learning to interpret themes
Jews Around the World: introducing our students to the diverse backgrounds of our families, and the global Jewish community
We also start learning to decode Hebrew, studying the Aleph-Bet and useful words that can be applied in their daily routines.
5783 Makom starts in October 2023 and runs through the beginning of June 2024.
