The Nefesh After School Religious Studies Program

 

The Nefesh After-School Religious Studies Program, 2017-2018

 

After-school religious studies will take place in Scottsdale once again for the 2017-2018 academic year!  Nefesh is a program is geared towards students in grades K/1-4.* It is designed to provide students with an opportunity for supplemental education in Jewish holidays and practice, Biblical study that is textually-based, an encouraging learning environment, and positive student-mentor relationship.  

 

Nefesh is organized and run by Congregation Beth Tefillah in Scottsdale and takes place after school at the J. It is open to all families at Pardes and other schools. Instruction will be provided by Rabbi Yossi Bryski, as well as two Israeli Ambassador's from Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz' yeshiva in Israel (a school that combines religious education with Israeli military service).

 

The first semester of the Nefesh program will run from the week of August 14th through the week of December 18th.  The program is organized as follows:

  • Monday:  Chumash (Bible) with commentary.  Grades 1-4.  
    • For interested grade K families, please speak with Ariella Friedman prior to enrolling
  • Wednesday:  Jewish Holidays and Halacha (Jewish law).  Grades K-4

 

All sessions will take place from 3:45-5:25, which will include time for educational content, a kosher snack (provided) and activities.  Students will be escorted from Pardes to the J by the Nefesh instructors or may be dropped off by parents if arriving from other schools.  Parent pickup at the J is by 5:30 PM.
