Welcome!

We are overjoyed to let you know that our Words of Wisdom program is back. What is Words of Wisdom? Here are TNT, we believe that the classroom should not be the only place of Jewish discovery. For this reason, a number of years ago, we launched our flagship at-home family learning program, Words of Wisdom, which aims to be a companion to our in-person Religious School experience.
 
This year, the theme of the program will be learning about the diversity of the Jewish world. Every two weeks or so, families will have the opportunity to learn about a Jewish community they may not know about. It may be the history and culture of Jews from Ethiopia, Iran, or Yemen. We will also include some holidays lessons so you can learn how Passover or Hanukkah is celebrated by Jews from around the world. Each at-home lesson will include something to read or watch and a few discussion questions. Some will also include an optional cultural project, using art, music, or cooking to further re-enforce the lesson.
 
As in the past, this program is not required but heavily encouraged. Sunday Judaic Studies teachers in Grades 3 thru 6 will keep track of who has completed the lessons, and we will have a special gathering at the end of the year to celebrate your efforts.
 
Below you will find the list of topics and links to all WOW lessons.
