MONTCLAIR JEWISH WORKSHOP

Graduation

In 7th grade, students work together on a year-long community service project that they develop themselves, in collaboration with their teacher.

Past topics have leaned toward social activism (a gun control forum), Jewish history (the many facets of Jewish immigration to the US), and Tikkun Olam (reaching out to a group of Muslim 7 th graders in the wake of 9/11).

Students also study the relationship of their project to Judaism—including values such as mitzvah, tzedakah, tikkun olam, and more. At a graduation celebration in June, they present their project to their families and friends.
