Cohen Hillel Newsletter

  1. 1. C O H E N H I L L E L A C A D E M Y — Gennifer Rubin, Gr. 1 “What I love best about Hillel is the way they teach art because I've never seen another school that does it like this. We study everything, even modern art and famous artists and we get to use lots of materials like we would if we were in art college and I love the teacher.” — Jonah Spritz, Gr. 1 “My favorite thing about school is PE because we get to exercise and play really fun games.” N O T E F R O M K E N S C H U L M A N , H E A D O F S C H O O L Spotlight Corner Grade 3 FLEXIBLE THINKING THIS PAGE SPONSORED BY the Board of Trustees of Cohen Hillel Academy www.cohenhillel.org Creating Critical Thinkers Through An Academically Challenging Program Grounded In Judaism Last week’s Marblehead Reporter featured a front page article on the CHAMPS program that CHA and the Ford School of Lynn have been conducting for the past 3 years. Both schools were honored for this program and received the Zakim Award at ADL’s Interfaith Seder, an event you can read about in the Jewish Advocate. In last week’s Jewish Journal, a story was featured high- lighting the CHA grade 8 Holocaust studies and the various activities and projects that are involved. There are so many “happenings” at CHA, such as the workshops Mordechai Rosenstein conducted at school this week, and his exhibit at Sovereign Bank, and the 3rd grade Shabbat Dinner, and the Shabbat services led by CHA students at Temple Sinai, and the 6th grade Bar/Bat Mitzvah program and the Friends of Hillel Library Event. While it is virtually impossible for the media to cover all of these events, we promise that we will continue to be the first and foremost vehicle that delivers the news about CHA “happenings”. P E O P L E A R E TA L K I N G Jocelyn Segal’s objectives for her third grade students are rooted in the academic and social skills in Jewish value texts that focus on how to learn in a community. The curriculum explores Jewish values through writing, discussion, art, storytelling, movement, and music, with the following objectives: • Teach students a wide range of thinking skills, such as: self- monitoring, collaboration, questioning, listening, flexibility in thinking and evaluating ideas, and how to respectfully challenge. • Create a dynamic and welcoming Judaism that incorporates new insights and application to their lives. • Increase connection to their Jewish heritage. • Raise levels of self-esteem and advance leadership skills. • Create opportunities where students learn with and from each other in a Jewish format called Beit Midrash (house of study) with hevruta. A hevruta is a small group that delves deeply into a Jewish text to understand it literally, question various levels of meaning and apply lessons to daily living. As part of their study, Rabbi Larry Karol, who writes music based on Jewish texts, worked with the students to create and record a song about listening to and respecting ideas that are different from your own. The song can be heard by going to www.cohenhillel.org and finding the link on the third grade page.

I am impressed by the level of education at every grade that we have been exposed to, and more than just the school book education, I am in awe at the kind of person that the school turns your child into. They become aware of their entire environment — the one that they live in but also, the smaller one that surrounds them. It is a perfect example of how Cohen Hillel is doing its piece by making the world a better place one child at a time.” — Cindy, Swampscott parent of 1st and 4th graders, Jacob and Rachel Garfield As you celebrate Passover, remember those still seeking freedom. gny bg WISHING YOU A HAPPY PASSOVER
