Mitkadem Program

Mitkadem’s self-paced and child-centered approach allows each student to achieve according to his/her own ability, identifes those students who need additional help early on, and gives the learner the ability to move more quickly through the material. 

The program consists of 23 ramot, or levels. Students may work independently, with another student at a similar level, or with another student in a “tutorial” relationship. In a Mitkadem classroom, the teacher becomes more of a resource and facilitator for students’ self-directed Hebrew learning.

Kita Dalet Prayers (Grade 6)

Kita Dalet students will be tested by one of the rabbis, cantors, or director of congregational learning. The prayer project testing will be done from the end of April to May. If a student requires more Hebrew enrichment, they will be required to attend Wednesday classes during the fall semester.

To maintain siddur proficiency, a prayer service will be conducted once a month on Tuesdays before religious school. This service will be held at 6.30 p.m. Attendance is expected for at least six of those services in their grade 7 year for those who have passed the proficiency test.

At Temple Sinai, I have met a lot of amazing people and made many new friends. Temple provides a great learning experience, whether it is learning about Jewish life, volunteering or working.

I like participating in the youth group, LOTSSY, especially the social action events like making sandwiches for the homeless or visiting youth at a group home. There are also many volunteer opportunities available.

The education program at Temple Sinai provides great Jewish learning in a warm and welcoming environment. While the kids complain about going (as is the wont of Jewish children since time immemorial), they leave Hebrew school excited about their progress and come home with both art projects and stories to share.
