The Hineni Program is a flexible, creative model for our fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students who are interested in taking an active role in acts of tikkun olam (repairing the world).

Students connect to Judaism in a variety of ways; this program is designed to allow participants to create their own meaningful Jewish experiences and memories.

The Hineni Program is for students who want both flexible learning options and are exciting about engaging in acts of tikkun olam.

Students attend class one day per week.
Students are expected to attend at least 75% of all scheduled classes.

Small groups limited to six students for intimate, individualized attention.

Students, with the help of their parents, can design their own unique Jewish learning experience as they explore their areas of interest while earning 30 Hineni Points each year.

HIneni Points can be earned by:
• Attending services - at least nine of these points earned by attending three services at Temple Sinai (each service earns three points).
• Family workshops (six points)
• Trips (starting at six points)
• Parent participation in an adult education class or lecture (four points)
• Independent study project (starting at six points)

• Students choose six weekday or weekend Hineni sessions from among the 12 offered, according to their needs.
• Sessions are two hours on select weekday afternoons, evenings, Sunday mornings, and Jewish holidays.
• Each session includes breakfast or dinner, a study session, and a mitzvah project.
• Parents are welcome but not required to attend.

Following the Hineni sesssions, students will reflect on and record their experiences in a Tikkun Olam Journal.
