The world stands on three things; on Torah study, on prayer, and on acts of loving kindness.
– Pirkei Avot 1:2
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.
