We are passionate about connecting families to the rich tradition and values of Judaism. We believe that Jewish education is a deeply social process, one that relies heavily on relationships and community. Together, we build frameworks through which every learner, regardless of where they are on their Jewish journey, is equipped with the tools to unlock their Jewish connections and satisfy their curiosity. We help Jewish learning go beyond the walls of the synagogue so that it reveals itself in every aspect of life. We believe that Judaism is inherently relevant to our modern lives and has the power to transform the way we see and operate in the world around us.
From pre-k to senior year in high school, our suite of formal and informal educational programs helps every child – and family – make the most of Jewish living while building lifelong friendships. See the information below and then call us to discover the best Jewish education for your children.
Our Pre-K & Kindergarten program gives your little ones a taste of Religious School! Taught by our talented Early Childhood specialist, Gal Segall, each session highlights the unique rituals and celebrations of each Jewish holiday through a variety of artistic explorations. Classes meet on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:45am several times throughout the year. Our Pre-K and Kindergarten programs are typically followed by Young Family Celebrations at the temple – fun for the whole family. Throughout the year, we have Tot Shabbat services geared towards little ones and their families to get them used to the idea of celebrating Shabbat as a family at our congregation. Free and open to the community. Contact Director of Education, Jackie Kurland for more information. This program is funded by the generosity of congregant Dr. Caroline Bauman.
Grades 1-6 gather each week on Sunday mornings to build community and friendship while engaging with Jewish ideas, values, holidays, customs and history. This year, we are prepared with a robust, nimble, content-rich program that will allow us to come together outdoors at the synagogue or meet online when weather or health conditions require a move. Contact Director of Education, Jackie Kurland for more information.
One-on-one Hebrew tutoring occurs weekly on Tuesdays or Thursdays for each student in 4th-7th grade. In this incredibly effective method of teaching, each student will have a 30-minute Zoom session with their Hebrew tutor that is tailored to their learning styles. Students enter B’nei Mitzvah Boot Camp approximately six months before their B’nei Mitzvah to work with tutors and clergy as they make their final preparations before being called up to the Torah. Please note that Boot Camp meets in person on Tuesdays. Contact Director of Education, Jackie Kurland for more information.
In our 7th grade Farah Family Hineini Program students go out into our community and put the Jewish values they have learned into action making our world a better place and writing the next chapter of our Jewish story. This service-learning model has transformed Sunday mornings for our students and their families. Contact Jane Dubro for more information. This program is funded by the generosity of The Farah Family.
