Grade 4 Parashat Ha-Shavua and Sacred Texts

Grade 4: PARASHAT HA-SHAVUA AND SACRED TEXTS.  Grade 4 students will reinforce their understanding of the structure and content of Torah. Students will study each week’s Torah portion (Parashat Ha-Shavua) in preparation for composing and delivering a D’var Torah, a commentary of the weekly portion.  The curriculum is also comprised of a survey of Jewish sacred literature:  TaNaKH, Talmud, Midrash and others, as they learn to identify each work’s main features and the relationship among these texts.  Students will also begin thinking critically about right and wrong, the importance of the choices they make, and the role that Judaism will play in their lives.
