Goal #1: To create a sense of positive, strong Jewish self-identity based upon the following guiding questions:
- What is the historical relationship between God and the Jewish people, and how does that relationship continue today?
- What are the values set forth through the teachings of our tradition and how do these values guide us in our relationship with others and with our world?
- What tools are essential for living a Jewish life?
- What was the role of the land of Israel in our history and what role does it play in our lives?
Goal #2: To assist students and their families in grappling with the guiding questions in a way that is accessible, relevant, meaningful, and modern.
Goal #3: To foster a connection to “community” that includes their class, the congregation, the Jewish people and all the world.
