Believing every Jewish family, however isolated, over-scheduled, unaffiliated or disengaged, deserves to engage their children in fun and accessible Jewish education, ShalomLearning, Inc., today announced an expansion of its curriculum to now include bar/bat mitzvah preparation for 7th and 8th grade students as well as one-on-one online tutoring for Jewish learners of all ages and abilities.
Beginning this fall, ShalomLearning, a non-profit, will offer tutoring in Hebrew reading and conversational Hebrew, as well as a track of courses designed specifically for b’nei mitzvah preparation. This should be welcome news to synagogues across North America, many of which are becoming increasingly attracted to ShalomLearning’s blended curriculum and online learning platform as part of their own Jewish education program.
The new programs are made possible through ShalomLearning’s recently established strategic alliance with OnlineJewishLearning.com in order to share resources and to provide personalized instruction to students and their families across the globe.
For many living abroad, especially military and corporate expatriate families, staying connected to their Jewish faith, and keeping up with their children’s Jewish learning, can be a struggle. With few options to build and maintain long-term connections with other members of the Jewish community, programs like ShalomLearning are essential to fostering Jewish identity in children.
