About This Activity

Saturdays - 9:30 AM – 12:15 PM Tuesdays - 4:30 PM – 6:15 PM 7th Grade: Kitah Zayin We continue our parent-teen learning partnership with our Middle School program. Our program for seventh grade students provides a balance between skill development in preparation for the B’nai Mitzvah, God talk, an investigation into the siddur, and discussions about relevant Jewish issues. Classes meet Saturday morning, and for students who do not attend a Jewish day school, Tuesday classes are held to supplement the Shabbat learning. Parent classes meet once a month as well. The Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremony marks the beginning of our lives as a member of the Jewish community, and our 7th Grade class on Tuesdays focuses on middot or Jewish values as well as participation in Jewish life cycle events. This part of our curriculum attempts to provide students with the necessary tools to fulfill the mitzvot, our most sacred obligations. This year we extend the focus to other aspects of Jewish life with this component of our program. Many of the students will become a Bar/Bat Mitzvah during the year, and by focusing this aspect of the class on life after the Bar/Bat Mitzvah year, we are aiming to make the learning relevant and meaningful so that students will continue to attend class after their ceremony. On Shabbat mornings, the conversations we have with the 7th Grade students focus on prayer leadership and an in-depth study of the weekly Torah portion. Our class leads the Torah service each week and learns what the prayers are all about and how they apply directly to our own lives. Developing a personalized relationship with the liturgy is what this class is all about. The students also lead the full Kiddush in class, and we spend time dissecting and learning the prayers they will be responsible for when they become B’nai Mitzvah at HNT. All students are always invited to stay for Kiddush after services. Please feel free to come to
