Hagigah, for 2nd–5th graders, is a theater program that meets weekly during the school year, on Wednesday afternoons, from 4:00 - 6:00 PM. Through the production of an original fall play and spring musical, participants explore a major Jewish learning theme. Past themes have included Tzedek (justice), American Jewish history, Jewish values and Jewish holidays. Hagigah teachers create an inclusive, supportive environment where every child gets to express his or her creativity, and everyone gets a part in the shows. Come learn Judaism through theater!
This popular program is a full-fledged Judaica program just like Sunday Program and Camp Beth Am. The program is capped at 30 students.
Note: This program requires extra rehearsal hours, parent involvement and a supplemental tuition charge of $150 (included in the total listed in the 2017-2018 Youth Ed Tuition). Performances are scheduled in mid-December and early May, on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.
