Some of our religious school kids at work
A Jewish education is one of the greatest gifts you can give your child. A good Jewish education will add meaning and depth to a student’s life. We are committed to providing positive Jewish experiences, along with the support and partnership of parents and families. Our religious school is run by volunteers from our temple community with the support and assistance of Rabbi Brickman.
Our school mission is to have Jewish life play a rich and vital role in the lives of both our students and their families. We strive to fulfill this mission through song and prayer, art and dance, laughter and joy, field trips and dialogues, friendships and memories.
Because we are a small congregation, we have partnered with the Institute of Southern Jewish Life (ISJL) for our religious school curriculum. The curriculum is developmentally appropriate, nurturing students’ Jewish identity, equipping students to live rich and meaningful lives. The ten key content areas are: Community, Culture and Symbols, God, Hebrew and Prayer, Israel, Jewish History, Jewish Holidays, Jewish Lifecycle Events, Mitzvot and Jewish Values, and TaNaKh (Torah, Prophets, and Writings).
For children age 3-5, religious school is held once a month on Rabbi weekends. Children age 6 through Bar Mitzvah age
