Tamid Learning Program, Tuesdays 4 – 6pm

TBI TAMID with Kim

Making Lasting Jewish Memories

We believe that traditional classroom learning is not an effective way to impart a love of Jewish life to our children, so we created an after-school learning program that is activity based, focusing on social-emotional behavioural education within a Jewish context.

Our engaging, hands-on, project-based learning program makes Judaism accessible and relevant to young people because we believe that children learn best when they enjoy themselves. Focused on providing an informal, high-quality learning environment in which children love being together, we bring Torah to life through explorations of Hebrew, Jewish Studies, and all-school t’filah (prayer service).

Find your connection to our program by reading more about our curriculum and discover how to make Judaism a part of your student’s life both on our campus and in your home through our Tamid program.

Services & Festivals

Sukkot

Each day at Tamid concludes with the entire school community gathered together for weekday evening t’filah (prayer service).

Tamid t’filah is an experience unto itself, introducing students to relevant liturgical interpretation and fresh musical repertoire that is not only educational, but engaging. We meet in the Friedlander where we engage the students in visual t’filah for the last 20 minutes of the day. Parents are welcome to join us. Visual t’filah is a wonderful way of using technology to bring prayer to life.

Our weekly services are an excellent way for students to not only become familiarised with the prayers and liturgical concepts that they’ll need to know for their b’nei mitzvah, but also to form a lasting connection to them.

There are even more opportunities for prayer with the TBI Tamid community:

  • Family Shabbat (first Friday of the month from 6pm, for families with primary-school-aged children)
  • Tot Shabbat (fourth Saturday of the month, 9.30am, for families with children in kinder and younger)
  • High Holy Days & Festivals (Tot and Family Services)
