Our educational program prepares students to:

  • have a positive Jewish identity and connect themselves to our people through the study of Jewish history, ethics, theology, and rituals
  • have a relationship with God, and to express this relationship in various ways
  • affirm their bond to both Eretz Yisrael (the land of Israel) and the modern State of Israel
  • value the study of Torah and Rabbinic literature
  • read Hebrew, and to understand the themes, key words and appropriate occasions for the recital of prayers in the Reform liturgy
  • pray with sincerity, and to participate in services in both our own synagogue and in synagogues worldwide
  • appreciate Hebrew as a modern, living language
  • pursue mishpat (justice), tzedek (righteousness), and chesed (loving deeds), and to understand that these acts are mitzvot (Jewish obligations)
  • celebrate Shabbat and other holidays, and to observe Jewish life cycle events with an understanding of why and how they are observed
  • respect themselves as liberal Jews and to be able to make informed choices
  • express kinship with K'lal Yisrael (the community of Israel) by learning about the diversity of Judaism within their own community and around the world
  • support, participate in, and enjoy synagogue life, and to view the synagogue as a safe and enriching environment
  • encourage the participation of parents in the Jewish education of their children and provide opportunities to enrich their education
  • continuously strive to provide a quality instructional program, for all, in a safe school environment

Our building has accommodations for students with physical challenges and for students with special needs we make efforts to partner with our families to provide a Jewish education and life cycle celebrations.  You can read more about this here
