Program Details


Meorot targets elementary aged students. Classes will group students based on age and ability and will be capped at 12 students. Classes will be designed to cultivate a supportive environment with a low student to teacher ratio.

We are excited to return with two options for 2022-23, both held at Young Israel of Great Neck.

Option 1: Meorot Hebrew Language and Judaic Studies Class held Mondays after-school

Option 2: Meorot Tefilah Class held Fridays before school
