Our Mission

A religion is made up of a community. 

Through Jewish culture and religious concepts, we teach our students the principles of responsible behavior in all of their communities: family, friends, school and the synagogue.

A religion is rooted in a tradition. We teach Jewish ritual. The children will learn the spectrum of ways to observe as a modern Jew, and why we do what we do. They will know the origins of our traditions and rituals. A religion celebrates our deepest beliefs and experiences. We teach our children the deeper joy that can be found in a spiritual discipline, and the happiness we can create in observance of Shabbat and Holidays.

A religion is rooted in a teaching. We pass on the love of Torah to our children, in all of its complexity, beauty and inexhaustible mystery. They learn to revere the wisdom of our heritage on their individual paths. They come to understand to use Torah as a reference; to ask their questions, compare their insights, and see the reflection of their own spirits. Torah is not just a set of texts, it is an on going project that they are a part of.

 

Parents

We are deeply committed to our vision of a Religious School community. A vision which can only become a reality with the active participation of parents. We are thankful to our parents for recognizing the value of a Shabbat culture. Our curriculum focuses on Shabbat celebration, practice (crucial to preparation for Bar/Bat Mitzvah) and communal life. Our distinctive Shabbat culture provides children with a solid foundation for Jewish practice, a deep understanding of our individual duty and establishes participation in synagogue life later on.
