Barkai Yeshivah’s mission is to cultivate the unique potential of each ben and bat Torah, based on the belief that all elements of our world should be recognized through the framework of Torah. Our goal is to provide a warm, child-centered environment in which students can develop into lifelong learners and pursuers of knowledge who will become the leaders of the next generation. Our general studies program will develop high- level skills and a depth of knowledge that will enable our students to engage in the world as informed, proficient, and discerning citizens. Barkai’s Hebrew immersion program will provide our students with the ability to master the Hebrew language as well as instill in them a deep love for the people, land, and State of Israel. Our commitment to imparting our honored Sephardic heritage, traditions, and culture is essential to the preservation and continuity of our community for generations to come. Our students will emerge with a strong sense of personal identity, refined character, and as educated, well-rounded bene Torah. They will be well- versed in Torah and committed to Misvot, in order to live a Jewish life in the contemporary world.

Tech Class With Morah Basya Greenberg Technology Coordinator, Morah Basya Greenberg, taught 2nd grade girls various features of Google Draw to spark creativity through the use of technology.

Art with Morah Barbara Sakkal This year's theme in the art room is Environmental Awareness. Throughout the year, classes will be focusing on various aspects of our environment and delving into how we can care for our planet.

We began the year with with lessons on electricity and the different ways it can be generated. Discussions led to alternative energies, specifically solar power. To combine art with solar energy, each Lower School student created sun prints using natural materials such as leaves. When placed outdoors on special SunPrint paper, the images revealed a work of art. Middle School students will be following the same process using their original artwork.

The children were fascinated to witness the power of the sun and explore its many facets.
