Havurat Shabbat (Shabbat School) Option for 3rd - 6th GRADE

**The Shabbat School option is dependent upon registration numbers. The availability of the class for a given grade will not be confirmed until June 30, 2015 at the earliest. 

All students in grades 3 - 6 attend PSJC Hebrew School on Wednesdays, 4:00PM - 6:00PM.  The Havurat Shabbat program gives families the option to enroll in a specialized Shabbat morning program, Saturdays, 9:30AM - 12:30PM, in place of the Sunday morning class. The Shabbat morning classes are multi-grade level and follow a values and text curriculum that is different from the regular PSJC Hebrew School Judaics curriculum.

The program was created in response to families' desire to have more opportunities to learn and celebrate Shabbat together. Due to this emphasis on community and family education, the Shabbat School option has additional  requirements beyond the regular Hebrew School obligations. We consider these opportunities to build community, both within the Shabbat School and wider PSJC community. These requirements include: regular attendance at Family Torah (12 sessions per year), one parent volunteering as an usher (downstairs or upstairs) twice a year, and completion of a grade-level project as a family. We also encourage parents to participate in Shabbat morning services with the congregation, attend Parshat HaShavuah with our rabbinic intern, and to foster community building among the class with Shabbat meals and picnics. 

The Shabbat morning program includes both a shortened Hebrew school class, required participation in Junior Congregation, and participation in leading the concluding prayers of the main service when time allows.  It is important to note that the curriculum shifts for students participating in the Shabbat option and those families with specific concerns or questions should contact Aileen at aileen.heiman@psjc.org.  

6th and 7th Grade Shaarei Mitzvah Program

In the months prior to Bar/Bat Mitzvah, students and their families will participate in Shaarei Mitzvah (pre-B’nai Mitzvah program) to help develop the skills necessary for participation in the service and to discuss issues around becoming Bar/Bat Mitzvah with peers.  These programs include Shabbat meals, movie nights, family values discussions, and guest speakers.  Students enrolled in the PSJC Hebrew School will not have normal class on weekends when the Shaarei Mitzvah program has met over Shabbat. Students in the 7th grade  participate in monthly field trips both as part of Hebrew School and the Shaarei Mitzvah program.

FAMILY PARTICIPATION


The PSJC Hebrew School can only function with help from our parents and it is expected that every family will volunteer in some way during the school year. Please select all areas of volunteering that you are interested in.  You will be contacted by Aileen or a member of the Hebrew School Committee in the Fall.


We ask our parents and students to make a commitment to being our partners in creating a positive learning environment at PSJC. Please read the following section and initial your agreement to the following.

Please enter your initials here to indicate you agree to be an active partner in your child(ren)'s Jewish Education.

Please note, if your child(ren) has a prescription for emergency epi-pen and/or Benadryl in case of an allergic reaction, you must provide separate written permission for PSJC employees to treat your child.  Please place the letter with the epi-pen/Benadryl in a bag with your child's first and last name clearly labeled.

WALK-POOL & TRANSPORTATION COORDINATION


PSJC Hebrew School does not provide school pick-up and transportation to Hebrew School, but we are happy to help support families in creating walking and travel groups. New in 2016-2017 is the opportunity to volunteer as a SCHOOL CAPTAIN.

School Captains are parent volunteers who coordinate and facilitate walking and travel groups from their child(ren)'s school to PSJC.  Facilitating the group can mean everything from supervising the walk yourself, to working with other parents to arrange a walkpool, to organizing the hiring of a babysitter/teen/teacher. In exchange for serving as a School captain, the family will receive a $100 discount on Hebrew School tuition, as well as the ability to enroll their child(ren) in the Early Arrival program at PSJC for the day s/he coordinates for a nominal fee of $36. Please note, School Captains will be appointed on an as-needed, rolling basis, based on when you volunteer.

Please note, PSJC does not guarantee the option for pick-up from every school our families attend. PSJC Hebrew School also assume no liability related to the walking or travel group and its sole role is in facilitating parent connections.

Please check if you are interested in participating in a Tuesday walkpool

Please check if you are interested in participating in a Wednesday walkpool
