Sundays, 9:30 am-12:15 pm 
Noar Sunday, Temple Sinai’s innovative Sunday learning experience for kindergarten through 6th grade, provides opportunities for growth and learning! All Noar programs are based on these 4 principles:

• Authentic Jewish content
• Personal Choice
• Community Building
• Hands-on learning

Noar Sunday is broken up into four eidot (units), each with its’ own curricular focus.  Our entire program also spends each session focused on mensch middot, Jewish values on how to be a mensch.  All students spend half their day in bayit (home base community), their core Jewish experiential learning environment.

The other half is spent in chugim (electives) that they choose for a semester, allowing for personal choice and authentic Jewish content in a way that is relevant to them. Our chugim also take place within the learners’ eidot, meaning they get to know other children their age in other bayit classes. Chugim follow their own learning plan, and connect it to their Bayit learning.

Our Noar Hebrew programs for students in Grades 3-6, focus on learning Hebrew through prayer.  Our goal is for students to develop Jewish life skills, read/chant confidently, and deepen their personal connection to prayer.

All three options follow the same curriculum and Hebrew focus.

Option 1: Hebrew Chavurah
Small groups that meet in neighborhoods around Atlanta.

Option 2: Sunday Hebrew
Groups of 10-15 students that stay after Noar Sundays for Hebrew.

Option 3: Private tutoring
If neither of the group options work for your child, you may choose a private tutor from our list of tutors.

*Students must be enrolled in both Noar Sunday AND Noar Hebrew to receive a Bar/Bat Mitzvah date*
