MoEd: A Jewish After-School Community developed curricula for a daily, after-school program for elementary school-aged children that emphasized Hebrew language and Jewish engagement in a cross-denominational setting.
This grant intended to expand MoEd/מוֹעֵד to build sustainability, leveraging its successful first year as a community after-school offering Hebrew-immersive Jewish learning, engagement with texts, activities that nurture leadership and connection among our students, and including children with diverse learning styles and needs.
Activities planned included (1) developing curriculum for older elementary school grades and children attending for multiple years, based on its initial curriculum and those of the Kesher and Edah programs; (2) developing a multi-week summer camp with curricula linked to its school-year program; (3) creating attractive and durable classroom materials tailored to MoEd/מוֹעֵד; and (4) increasing its capacity to welcome students with special needs.
