Sunday- First Session
Kinder – 5th Grade
On Sunday, students learn about the Jewish Holidays, lessons & stories from the Torah, our connection to Israel, and Jewish values such as Gimilut Chasadim (Acts of Loving Kindness). Each grade explores our school-wide theme at a different angle which enables siblings and family members to learn from one another.
In addition to spending class time on core curricular topics, teachers place a strong emphasis on community-building throughout the year. Team building exercises, name games, and positive classroom management techniques are used so that students create friendships, and feel connected in positive ways to their teachers and peers. Our favorite way to start class is with a quick share of “Joys & Oys” from the week!
Midrasha (Wednesday) Program
for 3rd-6th Graders
Our Midrasha program enables students to expand their connection with peers, teachers, and rabbis, while providing an opportunity to deepen their engagement with the Hebrew language, gain knowledge on important Jewish skills, and participate in thought-provoking prayer study. The Wednesday program provides exciting and nurturing experiences for students!
**Students who wish to celebrate their B’nei Mitzvah at CBI are required to attend Sunday religious school and Wednesday Midrasha classes (3rd-6th). In the event that Midrasha is truly not possible for your family, please contact Carly Cera to discuss private tutoring and other options.**
