Out of the Box Curriculum

Our Jewish Education Philosophy

At Kol HaNeshamah, we believe that all of our children deserve an engaging, fun, and quality Jewish learning experience.

Our teachers and staff are dedicated to providing meaningful, vibrant learning experiences for all of our students at Kol HaNeshamah. We believe that Jewish Learning is a collaboration between our families and our community and seek to partner with you in providing opportunities for your children to build Jewish identity and knowledge.

For students to be enrolled in our KHN Education program (with the exception of KHN Kids – our toddler/parent program) they must be members of Kol HaNeshamah. Please contact our Executive Director by email or phone: 206-935-1590 for more information on how you can become a member.

Contact our Education Director with any questions you may have about our Children’s Education Program.

Shabbat is For Families!

We hold our Out of the Box! classes on Shabbat intentionally. Shabbat is one of the central tenets of Judaism. Coming together as a community to learn and worship on Shabbat is also one of the most wonderful pieces of the Kol HaNeshamah community. We encourage you to come with your children on Shabbat morning – stay for Torah Study at 9:30 and then join the students and the community for Shabbat worship at 10:45.

Our program is limited in the number of hours we meet (just 36 hours a year for Out of the Box!). Therefore we strongly encourage your participation at KHN holiday and community events, as well as home Jewish conversations and practice. In this way, we can work together to provide opportunities for Jewish Identity development and connection to the Jewish people.

Do not hesitate to email Director of Children’s Education, Elizabeth Fagin with questions or concerns.

We look forward to a year of learning with your children!
