When God gave the Torah to the Israelites at Mount Sinai they responded, "Na'ase V'nishma - we will do and we will understand." As Jews we understand that learning happens through doing. At Temple Beth David we create real-time, real-life Jewish learning and living - t’fillah (prayer), shabbat and haggis (holidays), mitzvot (commandments) and tikun olam (repairing the world).
Because children learn in different ways our program is structured to offer multiple modalities of learning: visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile. Students are challenged to see their learning not only for its own sake but as a tool for living and growing as Jews and Americans in the 21st century.
