How long is the school year? 30 weeks of learning from mid-September through Memorial Day, including 10 Family Education Sundays.
What’s included in the curriculum? IKARON brings each child on a journey of discovery, helping them to uncover an authentic connection to the time-tested teachings of Judaism. We do this through project-based learning, music, interactive activities, and opportunities to explore personal connections. Through exposure to prayer, ritual, Shabbat and festival observance, and Torah study, IKARON students will embrace life lessons guided by Jewish ethics. Hebrew vocabulary and connection to the land of Israel are reinforced throughout. To learn more about the curriculum click here.
