Elementary 

The first years at Mosad Shalom are aimed at making our students feel at home in their Temple and excited about their Judaism. They explore the Jewish holidays, rituals, and Torah stories, as well as participate in music, art projects and services with the entire school community. Beginning in 3rd grade, and continuing through 6th, students begin studying Hebrew language as well as Jewish texts, history, and culture in greater depth. We also begin teaching modern Hebrew as a living language. There are numerous programs that engage the whole family throughout the year including  FAMILY SHABBATS and Special Programs. 

  

Bar & Bat Mitzvah

B'nei Mitzvah learn along with their families. Special projects and activities augment the mastery of the Shabbat morning liturgy, trope for Haftarah and Torah, and the study of the weekly Parasha. Students are inspired to be civically responsible Jewish leaders. They meet regularly with the RABBI to discuss the meaning of becoming B'nei Mitzvah, they participate in Mitzvah projects, work on speaking Hebrew as a living language, and fully engage in activities that provide meaning behind their monumental achievement. Each step of the way, students' leadership is fostered and their Jewish identity is cultivated. 

Kesher     קשר

Building Connections

Exploring Ideas

Linking Jewish Lives

Kesher is Hebrew for "connection".  At Temple Adat Shalom, Kesher is a new program for TAS teens (7th through 12th grades).  The Teen Program at Mosad Shalom is designed to help our students prepare for making critical choices in today's world and helps our teens become informed Jewish adults, by studying Jewish ethical and religious values. For the first part of the day we discuss and participate in presentations designed around a variety of issues relevant to our Teens.

7th grade is focused on preparing for their Bar/Bat Mitzvah.  In addition to perfecting their Hebrew in prayers and their Parasha, they discuss and learn about Jewish values and ritual choices.

10th Grade  works with the Rabbi to prepare  for Confirmation.  Rabbi challenges the Teens in a variety of ways to look at current issues from a critical Jewish ethical standpoint and asks them to suspend their assumptions and examine them closely to determine their validity.

8th/9th Grades and 11th/12th Grades choose from a variety of specialties

No Holds Barred --opportunity to explore and challenge the truths about Judaisms and take a critical look at classic Jewish wisdom and how it intersects with each of us in the 21st century.

Dramatic and Musical Arts -- Let your creative juices flow!  take to the stage was you write, produce, act, sing, dance and play your way through original theatre to be performed for the younger students.

Visual Arts --Design and explore the world of Media Arts.  Design your own and be able to recognize the design elements in making good brochures and posters.  Explore the world of screen print art and design and apply ink to screen.  Express your thoughts based on the  semester's theme on clothing, posters, and canvas.

Video Arts -- Learn and improve your video making skills, produce your own JewTube series.  Get billboard showing at TAS and who knows, as the world is a stage, perhaps you'll even go international!

What's Up?--Everyone needs time to decompress.  Everyone needs a safe space to share, be heard, and know that our feeling,s questions, emotions, and accomplishments are valued, protected, and respected, not judge.  This is a weekly opportunity to unload, find support, support others, and hopefully find just the boost you need.

JEWISH HERITAGE TRIPS

Jewish Heritage trips are a unique inspiration of Temple Adat Shalom.  Understanding that next to trips to Israel and Jewish summer Camp, nothing serves to better bond a teen community or forge the fabric of Jewish identity than time spent together in new places.  We are proud to be the only congregation across most of the US that provides a Heritage Trip for practically every high school grade.  Each trip visits Jewish sites of interest, or explores sites from a Jewish perspective.  Our philosophy is that "Jewish" doesn't only happen when in synagogue.  Jewish is how we interact with the world, especially when not in the synagogue.  It is part of fulfilling our mission of being a "Light unto Nations."

8th Grade:  Jewish Heritage Trip, Los Angeles.  Martin Luther King Jr. Weekend.

10th Grade:  Jewish Heritage trip, Washington DC, Spring Break

11th Grade:  Jewish Heritage Trip, Costa Rica (emphasis on Tikkun Olam,  Winter Break
