Coronavirus Safety
At Kol HaLev, our childrens’ physical and emotional safety comes first. All of our staff are fully vaccinated, and most of our activities are conducted outdoors or in semi-outdoor settings.
Transportation
Although KHL does not transport children, we have volunteers who bring children from Ben Gamla. If you would like us to help arrange transportation from another school, please let us know and we will try to find someone available to help.

Shabbat Morning Childrens’ Program

Our Shabbat based childrens’ program is a highlight of our Hebrew School program.  Shabbat Torah School meets monthly on Shabbat, and teaches holidays, Torah, and what it means to live a Jew in their daily life. Our multi-sensory curriculum incorporates yoga, drama, cooking, and art to engage children actively in a fun learning process. Grades preschool through 10 (children over 10 welcome in main service). Runs simultaneously with every Shabbat service.  Join us!
