Jewish Youth Education at Temple Micah

teddy-kidsTemple Micah students learn Hebrew, Jewish history, holiday rituals and ethics on Sunday mornings and once a week in midweek classes. But the innovative Temple Micah approach (called Machon Micah, Hebrew for Micah Institute) also helps them develop a personal Jewish identity in a warm family and community atmosphere.

On Sunday mornings, for example, they attend grade-level classes while adults (not just their parents) participate in lectures and seminars. Then there's music, food and activities that involve the entire community.

At midweek school students don't study Hebrew but instead use their Hebrew (and music, art and drama) to learn about worship and participate in services. They learn Hebrew much more efficiently in one-on-one tutoring sessions at home over Skype software.

An article from our Dec. 2009 Temple Newsletter provides an excellent introduction to Machon Micah. 'Temple Micah is Machon Micah,' Rabbi Zemel said. 'The whole idea is to create a congregation-wide Institute for Jewish Living.'
