Makom: Learning & Torah with Nefesh Children | מְקוֹם

Makom is Nefesh’s program for elementary school age children, grades TK-6, with robust content, creative expression, and practical tools for building a Jewish life.

**Registration for Makom 5783 is now open**

The word makom  means “place”, and we are developing an understanding that every place can be a Jewish place. We learn together in class, and continue with family learning throughout the week, reinforcing this idea that wherever they are they can be living a Jewish life.

Every class is centered around three components:

Blessings: to learn, unpack, appreciate
Middah: our soul traits, which we apply to real life situations
Torah story: examining and questioning the story behind the story; learning to interpret themes

We also start learning to decode Hebrew, studying the Aleph-Bet and useful words that can be applied in their daily routines.

Using art, music and movement, we have a full bodied experience of Jewish education!

In 5783, Makom will have four classes: TK-K, and grades 1-2, 3-4, and 5-6. Makom is under the leadership of Ellen Kennedy, who has an extensive background in Jewish education, music and movement, and has worked with children of all ages.

Info Session: July 13, 2022
Orientation: August 21, 2022

Last Class: June 4, 2023
