Learning Labs

Learning Labs are opportunities for 2nd-6th grade students on Tuesdays to pick an elective and learn some meaningful Judaic content through hands-on activities in creative fields such as drama, music, cooking, etc.
For the 2020-21 JLC Year Learning Labs only the Cooking lab is available on Zoom.

Cooking Learning Lab – where students will explore different recipes reflecting different aspects from the Torah and the history of our tradition. For example, when learning about Parashat "Bereshit" students create a Challah Bread Pudding whose ingredients represent what was created in each of the days of creation. When learning about Israeli culture students make Israeli Salad representing the different kinds of people we can find in Israel, and so on.
