House of Study

About Us:

For children aged 10 – 13 in the Philadelphia area, Rabbi Julie conducts a one-room-Jewish-schoolhouse, in her home in Mt. Airy, Philadelphia, called House of Study. House of Study was created more than twenty years ago to capture the joy of learning in Jewish community. Class is held on Sunday evenings three times a month. Together, participants create a community that offers an engaging peer group and a very personalized course of study. Through songs, stories, lively discussion and dramatic enactment students learn Jewish values, history, traditional prayer and Torah. Younger students witness older students achieving and then eventually they become the models for new younger students; this replicates the multi-generational nature of Judaism. Rabbi Julie often works with an assistant, which allows the group to break into smaller sub-groups in creative ways. Students learn a lot, have fun and grow into a sense of Jewish mastery and meaning. Students are prepared to be called to the Torah and to chant their Torah portions as part of their Bar or Bat Mitzvah ceremony. The focus is to celebrate growing up Jewish with learning designed to be meaningful and manageable for each individual. Some children come in with minimal Jewish background and others have been in Hebrew school for years. Through the use of CDs, and assignments tailored to each child, everyone moves at their own pace. Rabbi Julie is a master teacher with decades of experience teaching a wide range of learners
