The weekly session includes time for socializing and community building, while enjoying dinner together, followed by two sessions of learning with a break for a whole group game. The kids spend time with the whole group and break into small groups based on their grade when in a text or history session. This format ensures plenty of all group community building and also provides the kids with age appropriate learning.
The Middle School Program will run from early October, 2022, to June, 2023. The in-person program will take place from 6pm-8pm once per week on Tuesdays at Kavana HQ in Queen Anne and will include a pizza dinner.
Youth are divided into two groups based on grade level wherein they are exposed to core Jewish text and key periods in Jewish history. Using dialog, reflection and peer-to-peer activities the Middle School Program centers on the self-discovery of Jewish values, identity and day-to-day relevance.
