Is The Sunday Experience right for my child?
Our students come from very different religious backgrounds and levels of knowledge. We do our best to get to know our students and teach them in a way that they can gain the most. We are happy to meet with you and/ or your child, or you may try The Sunday Experience out for a day and see what you think!
Is there homework that my child will need to do during the week?
We recognize that your children are very busy throughout the week. We do give worksheets and review materials to keep the material fresh their minds, while making sure to not overwhelm them. We find that even a few minutes of review during the week makes a huge difference and greatly enhances their ability to retain the material!
Will The Sunday Experience prepare my child for their bar/bat mitzvah?
We are dedicated to making your child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah meaningful, memorable, and of course fun. While we do not teach Torah reading, we will meet with each student to plan their very own personalized Mitzvah experience and project and offer a special curriculum. You will be walked through every step of the ceremony to make sure that it is a positive and comfortable experience.
