Religious School Yalla! Let's go!

Our Religious School program, called Yalla! Let’s Go!, is an entirely new approach to learning at B’nai Jehudah’s Religious School. We are committed to providing our children with the most impactful education that nurtures Jewish meaning, connection and continuity while inspiring them to ask big questions and have fun.

Yalla! features a new curriculum, four new immersive learning spaces, and countless powerful learning opportunities, complete with friends and fantastic teachers!

Our Student-Centered Curriculum

The new Yalla! curriculum will be used in the classrooms as well as in our new immersive spaces, and aligns perfectly with our religious school models, based on the whole-person framework that constantly evaluates what students know, puts into action (doing), believe, and where each student belongs. Yalla! will nurture all four of these areas to help each student lay the foundation for their own Jewish path. Our purpose is to work in partnership with our families to help lay a foundation for our students – giving them the tools they need to develop into engaged Jewish adults.

The key actions in this new model for learning are: Knowing, Doing, Believing/Valuing, and Belonging (KDBB), and the end goal is to give our students the tools and support they need (in partnership with their families) to grow into engaged Jewish adults.

Yalla! Let’s Go! is a great way to enhance your child’s knowledge and deepen their connection to Jewish life. For more information, please contact Dayna Gershon, Director of Formal and Informal Education, education@bnaijehudah.org.
