Ninth Grade

Ninth Grade Students begin to explore the varied ways in which Judaism is relevant in their lives today, and if found lacking, how to find its relevancy.  They will review the
former year, expanding upon the history of anti-Semitism, and how various Jewish movements throughout history have responded.  Students will question God's role, their relationship to God, and how to build a bridge between themselves and the Divine. 
 
The Jewish Heritage Trip for Ninth Grade, takes them to a private cabin in Big Bear,
for Jewish fun in the mountain air, and workshops geared to expand upon the year's
work back home.
