Bat Mitzva Club
Open to all Jewish girls ages 11-to-13 years, this club teaches girls the joys and responsibilities of Jewish womanhood. One of the many values is how to cultivate a sense of inner and outer beauty. Students tell us it has been the source of many new friendships and the inspiration for fantastic Bat Mitzvah speeches at its many activities that include weekend Shabbatones. The free class is available every Tuesday, from 3:45 to 5 p.m. One-on-one tutorials for older women are also offered.
Rosh Chodesh Club
Each new Jewish month is celebrated in a unique way so that students associate fun and learning to Jewish culture. The month of Adar - for example - is connected with the symbol of fish. So students connect to create sushi as a way to enjoy the new month. Every month has a different, creative way for students to connect.
Give and Get Club
This club teaches middle schools students to value mitzvahs or good deeds by connecting it to fun or relevant activities. For example, students send packages regularly to American soldiers in Iraq or members of the Israeli Defense Force. Students also have fun helping others as when they made special Purim packages for the Children's Hospital wards. But after they "give," students also "get" with special bi-monthly events such as pizza parties or tours to the Jewish section of Los Angeles.
Middle school students create special packages to celebrate every student's Hebrew birthday. These include psalms special for each month, some money for tzedakah, hand-made mugs as well as candy, paper horns and balloons.
Special Days Club
This club teaches students about the "smaller" or lesser-known Jewish holidays such as TuBeshvat, or the festival of the trees, and Purim "ha-katan," which happens when the Jewish year has a leap year, with an extra month of Adar. Activities include making packages, gift bags and creating presentations.
This weekly club is for all Jewish children in grades K through 3. It is a fun introduction to Judaism. Weekly workshops ensure that children have a positive Jewish experience they will never forget. It is offered Wednesdays, from 4 to 6 p.m. Please call (858) 547-0076 to register.
