Yalla! Let's go!

Yalla, our Sunday morning Religious School program, is committed to providing our children with the most impactful education that nurtures Jewish meaning, connection and continuity while inspiring them to ask big questions and have fun.

Yalla features the Chai Curriculum, experiential learning spaces, and countless powerful educational and engagement opportunities, complete with friends and fantastic teachers!

Our Student-Centered Curriculum

The Yalla curriculum aligns perfectly with our religious school model, as it is based on the whole-person framework that constantly evaluates what students know, how they put their knowledge into action (doing), and how it impacts their beliefs and sense of belonging. Yalla nurtures and helps each student lay the foundation for their own Jewish path. We look forward to working in partnership with our families to give students the love and support they need to develop into engaged Jewish teens and adults.

Yalla Sunday Morning Program

Pre-K through 6th grade: 9:00am-noon

New! All Hebrew classes take place during Yalla!

  • Pre-K – 3rd Grade – Their day includes age-appropriate Tefillah (prayers), engaging with hands-on curricular activities, building relationships with their peers and faculty, singing and learning Jewish songs, and a fun special activity each week that includes Mad Science, artists-in-residence, holiday celebrations and more!
  • 4th – 6th Grade – In the next phase of their Jewish journey, our older students explore topics including ancient Israel history, prophets, the “whys” behind holidays and traditions. Students also participate in student- and rabbi-led Tefillah (prayers), and one hour of Hebrew language instruction. Of course, building relationships with peers and faculty remains a vital part of everything they do.
  • 6th Grade Becoming – All 6th graders and their parents/guardians participate in a series of meaningful classes to prepare to become B’nai Mitzvah. These classes are created and led by B’nai Jehudah’s rabbis and educators. Through participation in these classes, families will have the opportunity to get to know each other better.
