Ruach Program

The 2013-14 Ruach Program begins on Tuesday, October 22 

Children who attend this program will learn the following:

1) Foundations - The fundamental beliefs and practices of Judaism as illustrated through inspiring stories and discussions

2) Heritage - An overview of the history, culture and variety of Sephardic Judaism

3) Tefillah - The children will also become familiar and comfortable with various parts of the regular Shabbat service so that they are empowered to participate more actively in the prayers at Magen David.

The curriculum this year will focus on Shabbat in the home.  We will learn Sephardic melodies for Shalom Alekhem, Eshet Hayil, Azamer Bishvahin, Kiddush, Shabbat Songs, Birkat Hamazon and Havdala.
