Davening Group at Pardes

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

Davening is available on the Pardes campus for all students in grades K-8 for the spring semester!

Groups meet every morning at 7:40 AM, and are divided by age and skill level so that each student is able to pray and advance at his or her own level. 

All groups are led by our talented Bnot Sherut and Ambassadors (Shlichim) from Israel. The groups are divided into four classes:

Introductory Group (K-1):  7:40-8:05 AM, Room 416.  

This group functions as a prayer/Tfillah class, teaching the meaning and recitation of the prayers.  This is primarily for kindergarten and first grade students or those new to davening.  This will eventually evolve into a service as the year progresses and the students learn more. In general, Mondays will be devoted to the learning of new prayers, with the remainder of the week focused on recitation/reinforcement of what was learned earlier in the week.  Taught by Ayelet.

 

Intermediate Group A (Grades 2-3, some grades 1 & 4):  7:40-8:05 AM, Room 418.  

For students already familiar with prayers/Tfillot, generally for grade 2-3, those in grade 1 with prior experience, or those in grade 4 relatively new to davening.  Students will build on last year's accomplishments, as they continue to recite known tfillot and learn new ones.  Particularly, we plan to complete the learning of Shmoneh Esrei this year, among other prayers.  Students will also begin to learn various halachot regarding Tefillah.  In general, Mondays will be devoted to the learning of new prayers, with the remainder of the week focused on recitation/reinforcement of what was learned earlier in the week.  Taught by Choshen.   

 

Intermediate Group B (Boys grade 4):  7:40-8:00 AM. Mondays-Thursdays in the Library (at the back of campus, on the left). On Fridays, meets in room 418.

This is an intermediate group for boys in grades 4. Students have already learned a basic tefillah service and will continue to learn additional tfillot throughout the year, along with additional halachot.  This semester will focus on Pseukei Dzimrah, Shir shel yom, and Hallel. Taught by Yaacov. 

 

Middle School (Grades 5-8): 7:40-7:55 AM, Sanctuary.  Meets Monday through Thursday.

The format of this group is that of personally-driven, individual prayer, tather than group recitation, ranging from brief to fuller recitation or instruction on the meaning and recitation of the prayers, depending on the skill-level of each student.  Taught by Meni.

 

In order to facilitate a smooth process within the classroom, it is requested that students arrive at or close to the start time and that parents remain outside of the classroom, so as to minimize distraction.  Please note that in order for students to maximize their progress, daily or close-to-daily attendance works best.

On Fridays, all groups will combine together in room 418 and will be taught by Yaacov and Meni.  Parents are invited to join their children on Fridays as well.  This arrangement will be a nice treat for the students and a chance for families to spend time connecting with their children through davening. 

 

As a reminder, this is a private program run through CBT, not provided through school.  As such, there is a requested/suggested fee of $250/semester per child to help support the program.

No family will be turned away due to inability to pay.
