Kol Tzedek Torah School (KTTS) is a Reconstructionist Torah School rooted in Judaism as a living tradition and justice as a guiding value. In our diverse and inclusive community, students learn Jewish history, text, and culture. We engage the whole student through creative projects, interactive lessons, and group discussions. Our curriculum places an emphasis on developing Jewish identity and relating to Jewish social justice. Through our dynamic program, our students recognize connections with Jewish tradition in their daily lives. We work to create an environment that empowers students to bring their full selves, and all their passions, to the conversation.
Classes for grades K-7 are held on Sundays during the school year from 3:15-5:30pm. A typical day of Torah School includes Tefillah with Rabbi Michelle and an all-school havdalah at the end of the day.
Throughout the year, we celebrate holidays together and invite parents to join us for various learning opportunities. Torah School students are also encouraged to join us for special programs as part of Shabbat for Everyone.
We are excited to welcome a diverse group of learners, and every effort will be made to meet the learning and accessibility needs of all children.
HEBREW AT KOL TZEDEK:
KTTS takes an innovative approach to teaching Hebrew. Our younger students learn sounds and patterns through games and songs. Our older students participate in a Hebrew Hevruta Program in which students learn with a tutor in pairs or groups of three, often before or after Torah School or at a time convenient for the families and tutor. Hebrew Hevrtua can be started at any age. We encourage families to start in 4th or 5th grade and we require Hebrew Hevruta starting in 5th grade.
