Rosh Pinah Primary School

Jewish Studies

Jewish Studies aims at instilling in the children a love of Judasim and giving them the knowledge and skills to live vibrant Jewish lives. As a Modern Orthodox Zionist school, we aim to develop a positive commitment to our own religion whilst ensuring that respect is shown for the religious beliefs of communities other than our own. The children are given the confidence to explore their own personal relationship with Hashem and to express it through a sense commitment to participating actively in the Jewish life of the school.

The curriculum includes Hebrew Reading and Writing, Parashah, Chagim, Chumash, General Knowledge, Shabbat, Kashrut, Brachot and Ivrit and Jewish General Knowledge. Every class will have between 45-55 mins of Jewish Studies daily.

A Jewish School isn't just Jewish because it devotes subject time to Jewish Studies. There are plenty of opportunities for the children to live, feel, sing, dance, practice and enjoy being Jewish. We start the day with Tefilla, Bench after lunch and have Kabbalat Shabbat on Fridays. Chagim will be celebrated with special activities and whole school events. We will have shofar club at Rosh Hashanah time, make Matzot at Pesach, learn with parents at Shavuot, dance on Yom Haatzmaut and much more throughout the year.
