A year-long opportunity for elementary school students to embark on an interactive, experiential program that will foster a deep sense of Jewish identity amongst its participants. Ivri Anochi will encourage friendships with other Jewish children, nurturing a connection to the Montreal Jewish community and Israel, deepening students’ connection to Jewish values, tradition and culture, and providing kids with a basic comfort with the Hebrew language.
“We’ll be teaching Judaism with a more humanistic approach rather than a religious approach. Our pillars are: Jewish identity, social justice, leadership, and Israel. All these pillars were taken into consideration when building the curriculum. We want to focus on self, family, peers, community, and the world/Israel – everything is interconnected.” – Yamit Ochayon, Ivri Anochi program manager.
