ADDITIONAL YESh PROGRAMS

In addition to our Judaica and Hebrew curriculum for Kindergarten through 10th graders, YESh also provides exciting programs for designed for families and students in order to enhance their Judaic experience.

Young Family Engagement

Shabbat ShaPlay is a fun and interactive singing service led by Miss Jane, our music teacher, one Shabbat morning per month. Families with children 5 years old and younger are invited to join us at Sea Gate Park on Shabbat morning for one hour, where we celebrate Shabbat with fun songs, musical instruments, and challah. Each family is provided with a special picnic blanket and picnic bag filled with snacks, challah and musical instruments for their child(ren) to play while we sing along with Miss Jane.

Shalom Yeladim! is a program for parents and their little ones (2-4 year olds). One Sunday per month during YESh, parents and kiddos will meet and learn about Shabbat and the Jewish holidays. Through crafts, play, yoga, music and fun, kids will begin to learn about Judaism in a hands-on and experiential way. Parents are invited to join their children on this engaging Jewish educational journey.

Family Shabbat

One Friday per month, our families are invited to a special Family Shabbat before Shabbat service. Each Family Shabbat is planned with a special theme pertaining to that month and provides a fun evening of activities and food for parents and children to experience together.

On hold due to Covid.

Garden of Eating

In the Garden of Eating, students and their families will join Rabbi Boxman for a Sunday morning of learning, cooking, socializing and most importantly, eating. Each session will focus on a different Jewish holiday and will include a discussion, cooking experience and tasting. All sessions run from 9:00am-11:00am and are grade specific.

Student Electives

In addition to grade-level Judaica, students will explore other Jewish experiences each week through crafts, yoga, Tikkun Olam, Hebrew Olympics, Israeli dance, cooking and more!

Mitzvah Bus

In this updated curriculum for the 7th grade, students will have an opportunity to engage in mitzvah projects each week. Throughout the school year, students will hear from engaging speakers, visit and learn about the work of local non-profit organizations, and engage in community service projects. At the end of the year, students will add up their weekly tzedakah contributions and make individual presentations about where they want the funds to be donated. A vote will be taken and the students will determine how their funds will be allocated. This program aims to educate our youth about the important work that needs to be done in our community and empower the students to take an active role in bringing about change. As an added bonus, each time students go out to the community service projects, they will stop at a local donut shop in search of Naples best donut!
