Netivot provides children with the building blocks to develop a love for Jewish life and a connection to Jewish traditions. Our synagogue-based program creates rich opportunities for Netivot students and their families to experience the rhythms and rituals of Jewish life while connecting to the larger community and the State of Israel.


Our passionate and diverse team helps your child expand their Jewish knowledge, ignite their Jewish pride and provide opportunities to put their Jewish values into action.


Our curriculum includes basic Hebrew reading and writing basics, learning and practicing Shabbat and holidays rituals, and discovering the meaning behind well-known Bible stories. We aim to ignite Jewish pride and establish meaningful connections to Israel. Using project-based learning and volunteering opportunities, our students put into action the core Jewish values learned in the classroom.


Our Netivot classes are structured by grade level, and average 10 students in each.

Nitzanim (Buds) for K-1
Perachim (Flowers) for grades 2-3
Peirot (Fruits) for grades 4-6


Our Netivot students benefit from a few special events each year! Our Sukkot celebration, Pre-Chanukah scavenger hunt, Netivot Shabbat programs, model Passover Seder and Year-End celebration are a few examples of the special events Netivot students and their families get to experience during the year.
