Did you know there is a method to what and how we teach in our schools here at Temple Kehillat Chaim? Children learn new things by hearing, seeing and doing. Our programs introduce prayers and songs and ideas about Judaism during the course of the school day. That’s our contribution to your child’s Jewish connection.
Here’s where YOU come in. Bring your child to services regularly and reinforce what we teach them. This simple act of participation puts our teaching into practice, creates the connection between the classroom and life, and helps to give a child confidence when they ascend the bimah. This simple act of participation allows us the opportunity to delve deeper into the meaning of the prayers because reading the words of the prayers is already part of the vocabulary.
Summer vacation is here and I have two itsy, bitsy requests. One, BRING YOUR CHILD(REN) TO SERVICES THIS SUMMER. And, two, have them practice reading their Hebrew once or twice a week in front of you. Hearing the prayers recited regularly is a solid first step to being able to read the prayers.
I wish you all a great summer and we look forward to seeing you for the first day of Religious School on August 19. Check the website for forms, calendar and information. And, don’t hesitate to tell people that the Mitzner Family Religious School of Temple Kehillat Chaim is the best in the metro Atlanta area!!!
