Religious School Classes

Nitzanim (Preschool: children ages 3 and 4 before December 1st and their parents or guardians)

The Nitzanim program is designed to introduce preschool children to Jewish holidays and concepts. We meet once a month for an hour on a Sunday morning and focus on holidays of the season. Each session includes stories, arts and crafts, songs, and, of course, traditional holiday snacks!

Gan  and Aleph (Kindergarten and 1st grade)

These Sunday morning classes provide students with the fundamental building blocks of a Jewish education. 

Bet -Zayin (2nd - 7th grades)

The core of our Religious School program meets on Sunday mornings and Wednesday afternoons and includes:

  • learning to decode and understand key elements of Hebrew and tefillah (prayers), 
  • exploring concepts of God and holiness, 
  • developing a core set of values and ethics based on Jewish tradition,
  • continually deepening an understanding of biblical texts and the lessons our tradition can teach us,
  • learning about and experiencing lifecycle events,
  • expanding knowledge of Jewish history and the land of Israel

Midrashah (8th – 12th grades)

In our post-Bnei Mitzvah class, which meets on Thursday evenings, we facilitate and direct students’ transition from children to knowledgeable, independent, critically thinking and committed Jewish adults.  To that end, we provide information, experiences, atmosphere, guidance, topics, and materials to engage our students as they grow and mature.
