The fourth year curriculum is focused on preparing and reinforcing the skills needed when the students begin their one-on-ones with Yitz. The students will continue to learn the Shabbat/Torah Service blessings and prayers; including learning if/how the prayers speak to them, and how they can be used to find grounding in our daily lives. Yitz and Terri Soifer Rainwater, one of Gili’s predecessors, created their own book for this class. The year will touch on Parshat Shavua, the weekly Torah portions. As students begin to know their Torah portion, they need to understand the context of the Torah and its themes. There will also be a regular focus on experiences and texts and ideas of Tikkun Olam – a focus for the whole school in during the 2016-17 year.
