Kindergarten — 6th Grade

Our program is designed for you to find the experience that works best for your family. Kindergarten to 6th grade offers two options plus Hebrew options.

1. A weekly experience every Sunday OR Wednesday
Our child-only, classroom-centered program which meets on Sunday mornings 9:30-11:30am OR Wednesday afternoons 3:45-5:30pm. This program includes dynamic classrooms with active learning, class choices for students in grades 3-6, music and art, clergy-led services, and occasional family learning programs.

2. A monthly Family experience on Sunday afternoons
A whole family learning opportunity open to families with children in grades K-6. Family School meets once a month on Sundays from 2:00-5:00pm. Each month families explore a Jewish learning topic together and then take home a choice of projects and experiences to do as a family that month.

3. Hebrew
Required for students in grades 4-6 and is open to interested 3rd graders. Students study Hebrew one-hour a week in small class settings (5-7 students). Hebrew is offered before and after Sunday and Wednesday schools. Students may combine their learning into one day, choose two different days, or combine their weekly Hebrew with monthly Family School.

4. Omanut – a supplemental arts program
Available to students in K-3 on Sundays at 11:45am OR Wednesdays at 2:30pm. This program offers a great opportunity for children to spend more time exploring Jewish concepts through the visual arts and is conveniently offered parallel to Hebrew School times to serve families with children in different age groups.

Junior Choir 
The Temple Sinai Junior Choir is going into its 15th year and is made up of children in 3rd-7th grade who love to sing and meet new friends. The Junior Choir is open to any student who loves Jewish music and loves to sing. There are no auditions; however, a firm commitment to the choir is encouraged. As a member of the Junior Choir, students will learn the Shabbat liturgy in an informal setting through music and prayer. Participating in the Junior Choir is a great way to prepare for Bar/Bat Mitzvah and get experience leading the service and singing from the bima. Attire for all Junior Choir members performing at services is white tops and dark skirts or trousers.

If you would like more information on the Junior Choir, contact Cantor Keys at the Temple Office (510) 451-3263.
