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.
The Torah is divided in to 54 portions. We read one or two of those portions every week. We finish the Torah and then, like a Möbius strip, we keep going by returning to the beginning. The Torah is made up of five books that tell the story of the Jewish people from the creation of the world through the death of Moses.
