RUACH Lab meets on Sunday afternoons from 3:30-5:30 p.m. as a projects “laboratory” for advance Jewish learning, with off-site “chavaya” adventures, opportunities for Saturday morning Shabbat B’Yachad (Sabbath Together) events and family holiday celebrations, and family-led gatherings.
RUACH Lab is taught by Sophie Spencer-Zavos. Sophie is also our Teen Leader and BAFTY Youth Group advisor, and works for the Oral History Project at the Yiddish Book Center. Last summer she worked on the Lev Squad of Eden Village Camp, and taught across America.
Hebrew Havurah meets Thursdays after school from 4:00-5:30 p.m. to study modern Hebrew and the prayer services, with healthy snacks, songs and fun in a great learning studio environment.
We utilize progressive curricula including URJ Mitkadem, Hebrew Through Movement, Shiri the Llama, Hebrew in Harmony, and have a lot of fun. The Hebrew Havurah teaching staff is passionate about Hebrew for kids and includes Rabbi Riqi and Hebrew specialists.
