MISSION

Our goal is to provide both an educational and enriching learning environment for all Religious school attendees. We strive to nurture the child’s Jewish identity while simultaneously providing an atmosphere that is welcoming and comfortable. A primary benefit to our Religious School is the exposure to other Jewish children which can stimulate personal growth for each child and provide a long lasting bond to the Jewish traditions. We encompass a wide range of learning opportunities that range from Hebrew, Torah studies and Jewish Customs to Educational Games, Stories and Art. This broad educational approach is designed to help all children learn when at Religious School as each child learns differently from the other.


TORAH TOTS is a new "family experience" service for our tiniest members. Tots and their parents or grandparents meet on the first Sunday of each month. All religious school students in the ALEF class and any younger child who is not yet in Religious School will be included in TORAH TOTS. The first Sunday morning program begins with  breakfast, which is followed by the Tot Service of music and prayers, which is followed by an oneg, which is followed by a hands-on art project.
