The Whole-School Holiday lessons make up a spiral curriculum, in which each lesson focuses on a different aspect of Jewish holiday, value, or key subject. With some exceptions, Whole School Holiday lessons are built around a matrix that allows students to have an unique experience each year.

- Grade 5–6: Purim Food
- Grade 6–7: The Illuminated Megillah
- Grade 7–8: Our Purim Problem
Our PUrim Problem explores a ritual that is part of many of our holidays. Drinking wine is something we do on all of our holidays, as well as Shabbat. We decided that talking about drinking is a difficult thing to do, yet one that is necessary. Purim is a good time to talk about the idea of appropriate drinking, drinking in moderation and allowing kids and and families to clarify their own values in a Jewish context.
