Tikvah Learning. The Hebrew School you wish you had gone to as a child.
Children in our once-a-week “Tikvah Learning” program are actively engaged in learning tailored to their own talents, interests, and abilities.
Each school year is divided into two semesters, with each semester having a Jewish Studies theme. Each year the themes are different, on a five year cycle. After a deep exploration of the theme through skits, games, discussion, videos, and other activities — always with an emphasis on core Jewish values — every child works on a creative project to share what they have learned with the community. Our end-of-semester Jamboree celebrations of their projects are always uplifting and inspiring.
Fall 2023 semester theme: A Jewish Life (through the life cycle)
Spring 2024 semester theme: Jews and Sports: How to be a Mensch
Children also gain basic siddur/prayerbook Hebrew literacy and are able to comfortably participate in Shabbat services. In addition, children receive individualized b’nai mitzvah instruction. Our B’nai Mitzvah mission: to collaborate with children and their parents in creating deeply meaningful, individualized b’nai mitzvah experiences — honoring each child’s unique strengths and challenges.
At Kol Tikvah, we strive to be an inclusive learning community. Our teacher training and attention to individual needs have made Tikvah Learning a place where children with learning challenges can be successful. We are committed to walking the talk on Inclusion.
