Congregation Or Atid’s Helen and Sam Kornblau Religious School is BACK in PERSON!

Or Atid students with Rabbi Hal and teachers on opening day of Religious School.

Last month, the students of the Helen and Sam Kornblau Religious School at Or Atid kicked off the year with a bang!

Students, grades K-9, embraced the space after a year of virtual learning. The students and teachers are so happy to be back and seeing each other in person! After a tour of the school and meeting their new teachers, students worked together to create a timeline of the Jewish holidays for the upcoming year in order to give them a visual representation of all of the exciting things we have to look forward to!

First Day of School

On the first day of school, the students celebrated Sukkot.  They had fun playing a “toss the etrog” game using water balloons, and enjoyed doing a craft of making a Sukkah picture frame, and then inserted a Polaroid pictures of themselves.

Our oldest students were madrichim and helped our younger students create their personalized school folders and helped to create classrooms that are vibrant and inviting to all. This year, the curriculum for our younger students (grades K-2) includes learning about the Jewish holidays, beginning Hebrew letter recognition and preliminary reading, and Judaic history. Our older students (grades 3-5) will focus their time on Hebrew reading and writing, Judaic history, and Israel. Our students 6th grade and older continue their mitzvah studies with Rabbi Hal.

We have so much to be thankful for and can’t wait to see what the year has in store! If you are interested in learning more about our school or Synagogue, please contact office@oratid.org or call (804) 740-4747.
