Religious School

The health and sustainability of our community depends on passing on our Jewish traditions and values to our children. And we strongly believe the education of our youth is the responsibility of our entire community. With these guiding principles, we strive to mesh our education programs with the activities of our community at large.

We offer a comprehensive religious education program for children from toddler through high school. Our Director of Education and teachers are experienced, enthusiastic and committed to Jewish education. Teaching Assistants who are graduates of our program join classroom teachers to provide a stimulating environment for learning.

Students and their families are welcomed and encouraged to participate in all our congregational programs from worship services, to holy day observances and social celebrations.
