Kitah Gimel

Gimel (5th grade):

In Gimel, the students are starting to move beyond basic Hebrew decoding and are now spending more time focusing on prayer and intention, including perfecting the Ma’ariv (evening) service and beginning to focus on the prayers for the Shacharit (morning) service.  In Gimel class, the students study the holidays through the lens of middot (Jewish values) and in their Torah study, they are introduced to Midrashim (commentary).  In regards to Israel studies, the students will focus on famous Israelis and take a look at Israel in the modern age, including its founding.
