Grades 1-2

Adventure Rabbi Kids – ARK 1-2

An Adventure in Jewish Education

 1st-2nd Grade Boys & Girls

  • Does your son or daughter enjoy learning through stories, movement, songs, and games?
  • Does he or she thrive in a social environment and enjoy interacting with other children? And, if not, is he or she open to learning how?
  • Does he or she do well in an experiential education setting, both indoors and outside?

If so, then this innovative program may be the right fit for him or her.
Adventure Rabbi Kids (ARK) 1-2, meets 9 times in 9 months. The curriculum for our youngest group is the same as that of our other courses but altered to be age-appropriate and to suit non-readers and emerging readers.

Family Participation

Four times a year we offer All-School Programs, to which siblings, parents and even grandparents are invited.  These festive celebrations help nurture the children’s understanding that as Jews, they are part of larger community. Plus, they are loads of fun!


Each class ends with a 15-minute song session, which parents and siblings are invited and encouraged to attend. The song sessions are shared with the entire ARK community. Song sessions are fun,  build community and help develop Jewish literacy.
