Sundays - 9:30 AM – 12:15 PM First Grade: Kitah Alef As students continue to grow, so does their understanding and appreciation of Judaism. In this year, students learn about mitzvot and how they can impact everyday lives. They will begin their exploration of God through a variety of activities and experiences. Their continued study of Jewish holidays will be orientated around certain mitzvot associated with each one. The big ideas of this grade include the following: Mitzvot are commandments that can be applied to our everyday lives; God is a central part of Judaism and we are all explore God in our own way; Judaism is filled with many celebrations; Hebrew is made up of letters that make different sounds.
