12th Grade Classes
Jewish Spirituality and Art
This class explores the many ways visual art plays a role in the way Jews pray, express ourselves and process our history. Through text study, art history, and our own art practices, we will delve into what it means to bring our art into Judaism and our Judaism into our art. This class is open to all Kulanu students.
Dianne Ben Mayor
This class explores the use of Yoga and the Jewish value of Beri’ut Health to explore the connection of mind, body, Judaism and wellness. This gentle and grounded yoga series is rooted in Jewish practice and will keep students moving physically and spiritually as they discover balance, both on and off the mat. This session is for 11th and 12th graders and has limited spots available. For those who do not get in this Fall, a waitlist for the Spring semester will circulate after the start of school. Students may not take this class both semesters.
The Israeli- Palestinian Conflict
The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is, at its core, a conflict over who controls and exercises rights in the same strip of land, resources, and holy sites. Almost as soon as it began, the peace process faced profound challenges and setbacks. In recent years, it has stalled to the point of near collapse. This class will offer a multiplicity of perspectives as we build dialogue and learning across a range of political differences on Israel. We aim to share views in a non-partisan manner that invites open inquiry. We invite you to learn and join us with an open mind and heart as we delve into recent Israeli political history and the potential conflict solutions. This class is taught with educational resources and support from “Resetting the Table”. This session is for 11th and 12th graders.
Monday – Midweek Kulanu Elective
Jewish Social Justice Elective
Mondays at 7-8:15pm at the JCC Lobby
This semester’s social justice mid-week elective will begin with the topic of racial justice—in particular, how does our Jewish tradition’s approach to race and justice prepare us to enter the public conversation about it? Once the class begins, students will be empowered to take this elective in the direction of their choosing! This class is for 11th and 12th graders who cannot attend Sunday evenings at Kulanu. Participation in this course is a replacement for Sunday evenings.
