About Our School

     

We don’t teach about Judaism, we live it. While learning praying, eating or doing mitzvot together, our children learn to see the world through Jewish eyes. Our curriculum and teaching methods aim to pass on to our children Jewish skills, Jewish knowledge, and most importantly, a sense of joy and pride in our Jewish heritage. We are proud of our faculty, all of whom have vast teaching experience. Each teacher is dedicated to give each child the personal attention he/she requires for a successful Jewish learning experience.

 

                      

Our School Philosophy

Our Religious School’s approach to learning is guided by the values and observances of Conservative Judaism. The aims of our educational program are designed to teach the children how to live in a modern world while appreciating our rich heritage and traditions. Students learn about many facets of Judaism including Hebrew prayer, rituals, history, holidays, customs, Israel and Jewish music. In preparing each child for a lifetime of Jewish living, learning and growing, our religious school offers dynamic opportunities for each student to participate in programs which strengthen their commitment to Jewish life and instill a sense of responsibility to the overall Jewish community. Our program is one that engages the entire family, builds community and makes Judaism relevant.

           

 

Prayer & Hebrew Reading Skills and Jewish Values and Ethics

Prayer and Hebrew Reading skills are key elements of the Religious School curriculum. Students are challenged at each grade level to expand their Hebrew language skills while developing an appreciation for mitzvot and customs, Jewish history, and creating strong ties to Eretz Yisrael. Jewish values are woven into all aspects of our program. Whether discussing Bible stories, the weekly Torah Parsha, holidays, Tzedakah, Tefillah and the aleph-bet, the instruction reinforces the idea that every aspect of Judaism has as its goal to teach us how to relate to the world.
