Religious School

Pre-School Program – Available for children ages 3-preK.  Students get an introduction to the rich Jewish culture through music, stories and arts & crafts. Pre-school meets 1-2 times per month.

Religious School – Available for students in Kindergarten through 6th grade. Children who complete this program do so with the ability to read Hebrew. They also graduate with a deep understanding of the Jewish holidays and culture learned through hands-on experiences and participation. Students are able to lead different parts of our Shabbat service and are well-prepared for their Bar or Bat Mitzvah.

Kesher is for 7th- & 8th-grade students. In this two-year program, pre-teens and teens prepare for the future in learning about modern Jewish choices.  Subjects such as eating disorders, drug and alcohol abuse are discussed through the use of Jewish texts and sources, giving our students a Jewish perspective on taking responsibility. Every other year, the class takes a trip to Washington, DC, with a focus on the US Holocaust Museum and learning tolerance.

Tichon is for 9th-12th-grade students. This program focuses on understanding the differences in Jewish movements and practices.  This year, it is studying the civil rights movement and visiting sites of significance around the region.
