The Academy at Kol Ami

Register for Academy Now

We invite all 8th – 12th graders to join us for a year of discussion and learning.

Classes will meet at Kol Ami on Sunday mornings, 10:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.

Grades 8/9 and 11/12 meet once per month. Confirmation (10th Grade) meets twice per month.

 

8th/9th Grades

The 8th and 9th grades will be instructed by Rachel Degani. We will engage the students through discussions that will bring Pirkei Avot, the ethics of our fathers, and Torah to the forefront of their lives. We will also include some young adult Jewish book studies and writing from a Jewish perspective.

Confirmation (10th Grade)

Confirmation will be instructed by Rabbi Siegel. The Kol Ami Confirmation program will be a program of Jewish and American Civics!  The late U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice, Louis Brandeis said, “We must learn to be better Jews by first learning to be better Americans.”  This year’s class will explore the basics of democracy and government in a uniquely Jewish way.

           The culminating event will be a 4-day trip to Washington, DC to meet with politicians, Jewish activists, and experience “up close and personal” the workings of the Federal government, and how teenage Jews can make a difference. Pricing and dates will be available soon.

It is important to note that Confirmation marks the culmination of years of study. Students who wish to be confirmed must complete the eighth and ninth grade classes of The Academy.

Brunch with the Rabbi (11th/12th Grades)

The 11th and 12th grades will be instructed by Rabbi Siegel. We will be using a curriculum based on Jewish “middot” utilizing Jewish texts, short films, interesting narratives, and classroom discussion.  High school can be filled with confusing and difficult events and even more difficult decisions. Our Academy program will help to bring Jewish values and perspectives to light which will help to guide them through these times.
