Talmud Torah Tuesdays give students the opportunity to build on their core Jewish knowledge through two types of classes: Core classes, divided by age group, and Judaics electives. Talmud Torah Tuesdays are required for all Tamid students.
Core classes: New this year, Core classes are a dedicated time for students to engage in grade-directed Jewish learning. This helps them build connections with students in their grade and learn about Jewish subjects relevant to where they are in their lives.
Judaics electives: Taught by members of the clergy and staff, electives are a creative and fun way to dive into a wide variety of Jewish topics. Some past electives have been: the Jewish roots of superheroes, Who Was Bob Dylan, Jewish meditation, gender in the Torah, Judaism and Star Trek, etc. Students can choose a number of electives throughout the year. This allows for deep and wide-ranging discussions across ages and experiences.
