The world stands on three things; on Torah study, on prayer, and on acts of loving kindness.
– Pirkei Avot 1:2
Education in East Hampton
Our Gates of Jewish Learning at the Jewish Center of the Hamptons focuses on family engagement and on cultivating personal relationships. Our students meet on Sunday mornings from 9:45 am to 12:15 pm. The curriculum focuses on learning about the Jewish tradition/history, Holidays, Hebrew and Prayer. We encourage every student to learn at his or her own unique pace. To this end, the Hebrew learning program is self-paced – each student progresses as they grasp the sacred language. A variety of experiential modalities are drawn upon. Art, music, movement and song are used when learning about holidays and prayers. To round out the curriculum, the Gates of Jewish Learning program has a strong Social Action component, directly applying the Jewish values learned in class with our role in the surrounding community.
Gates of Jewish Learning in New York City
Gates of Jewish Learning in New York City is a Religious School for families who call the Jewish Center of the Hamptons their spiritual home, yet live in Manhattan. We meet throughout the year tracking the same curriculum as the Gates of Jewish Learning in East Hampton. We supplement our program with private tutors who are in New York City, working with our children individually and in small groups. This “school without walls” enables our members’ children to be tutored individually by our approved tutors, and come together to create community, learn and celebrate Judaism.
