Our Outdoor School: A Place of Hope, Joy & Resiliency (Jewish Boston)

 

By Lucy Banerji, October 22, 2020, Temple Shalom of Newton Nursery School.

We believe that nature and an outdoor education are a wonderful platform for learning about Jewish ways of living

Reopening schools requires brave and careful thinking. Here at Temple Shalom Nursery School, we have found our courage in the wisdom of Jewish tradition and its core values: community, resilience and joy.

We believe that nature and an outdoor education are a wonderful platform for learning about Jewish ways of living and entering the spiritual state of awe and wonder. Even before COVID-19, being outdoors was always a big part of learning experiences in our school. Every day, our children are reminded that joy is not just a feeling; it is a skill. Small and big adversities in life uncover opportunities for joy if approached with a sense of gratitude. Rain brings puddles, a warm jacket wards off cold and patience brings a delicious harvest.
