Tuesday Night Program

 

6th-8th Grades
Michael Mason, Director
Tuesday Night Program (TNP) meets:

  • 6th-7th Grades: weekly during the school year on Tuesday nights
  • 8th Grade: varied Tuesday evenings -- see below for a schedule

from 5:30 - 7:45 PM

TNP combines formal and informal learning while building community. After a camp-style dinner, students participate in chugim (elective classes) including: Jews in film, Israeli history, video creation and art.

The 8th Grade TNP curriculum will be comprised of our best Avodah! Jewish service learning classes, Holocaust education, as well as looking beyond the B’nei Mitzvah as our students continue to apply their Jewish knowledge in a variety of settings such as debate or revisiting their B’nei Mitzvah Torah portion from a different perspective.The focus of 8th grade Tuesday Night Program will be on experiential learning, building community, exploring tikkun olam (repairing the world), our shared history with a focus on the Holocaust, as well as teaching Torah to each other. There will be opportunities for direct service projects at Ecumenical Hunger Program as well as the continuation of friendship bonds that have been developed in Tuesday Night Program, Sunday Program, Hagigah and Camp Beth Am.
