From Torah to Talmud and Holidays to Halakha, the Judaic curriculum of the JLC teaches our students about the history, customs and traditions of the Jewish people in an enjoyable and experiential manner enhanced by games, music, drama and stories. Our Hebrew curriculum focuses on the student’s ability to read, write and pray in Hebrew. It is important for our students to participate in the community during prayer times, as well as gain an understanding and personal connection to the prayers. Each class participates in a Shabbat Tefillah (service) and a Family Education program once a year.
The JLC “takes it to the next level” with additional school-wide programming on holidays and a variety of electives offered to 5th/6th grade students during the week (including but not limited to Israeli Dance, Israeli Music, and Jewish Cooking).
The Jewish Learning Center offers the following sessions for children by age level:
- Kindergarten and first-grade students attend classes on Sunday mornings only.
- Second through sixth-graders attend classes on Sunday mornings and either Wednesday or Thursday afternoons.
The Beth Am Jewish Learning Center is located in the Carmel Valley area at 5050 Del Mar Heights Road
