This fall, Beloved Brooklyn will launch Beloved Garden, a new kind of Jewish learning experience designed for parents and children to participate in parallel tracks in a warm, home-based setting. No classrooms, no blackboards, no homework; just a fully engaged intellectual and sensory exploration of the joys of Jewish life.
We believe that children are most enthusiastic about Jewish living when they see their parents excited and curious in their own adult Jewish lives. We also believe that many kids learn best when they get their hands dirty.
One Saturday afternoon per month, families will come together at Beloved Brooklyn, a home-based Jewish community in Clinton Hill, for multigenerational learning led by experienced Jewish educators. Kids will plant, cook, garden, create, and engage in service learning as part of age-appropriate lessons about Jewish values and the Jewish calendar, while parents gather separately for nourishing Jewish learning and reflection. At the end of the afternoon we will celebrate havdalah (the ritual at the end of Shabbat) and share a meal as a whole community. We will also welcome Shabbat together one Friday evening per month with song, prayer, learning, and dinner.
Our goal is to experience a Jewish life that engages mind, heart, body, and spirit in a lifelong exploration of what it means to be a human being.
Saturdays 3:30-6:30pm (generally 2nd Saturday with some exceptions)
Fridays 5:30-7:30pm (generally 4th Fridays with some exceptions)
We will also celebrate holidays together (noted below)
$500 per semester per family
