(Social Opportunities for Adult Recreation)
A program focusing on community-based social action and recreation. Community-based social action opportunities will give participants a chance to volunteer at local organizations, such as food pantries, and enjoy recreational activities that include bowling, movies and drama classes.
The SOAR program is designed for individuals from 9th grade through adulthood and meets on Sunday mornings at the Ida Crown Jewish Academy.
Designed to accommodate individuals from the age of 5, the program offers students with disabilities a connection to Jewish learning.
Each Sunday during the school year, students learn about Jewish holidays, heritage, rituals, and traditions. Other featured classes include Hebrew literacy and the weekly Torah study. To keep learning fun and approachable, we supplement traditional classroom sessions with art projects, stories, mock Shabbat services and everyone’s favorite, end of the day sing-a-long sessions. Students also enjoy weekly specialty classes, such as yoga, music and cooking, as well as a host of community activities and outings.
Programs for elementary school ages students are offered in Chicago at Bais Yaakov Yeshivas Tiferes Tzvi, the Ida Crown Jewish Academy in Skokie, and at Temple Beth El in Northbrook.
