Religious School

The Shul School models love and compassion through the practice of peaceful problem solving, respect for others and appreciation of diversity. We are proud to provide a program rich in Jewish values that encourages the development of each child's individuality. Sensitivity to the unique nature of each child guides the essence of classroom interactions.

The Shul School is not only a place of learning, but it is also a place for creativity and fun. There is no rule that says, "Hebrew School should be boring!" So many parents tell us that their religious school experience was less than enjoyable. It is extremely important that all the children enjoy the time they spend in Jewish Studies. We are blessed to have a teacher that uses imaginative and innovative methods to educate and inspire our youngsters

The Shul School faculty is committed to bringing the love of Judaism to your children, in an appealing and pleasurable way. We are blessed to have such a talented staff that uses imaginative and innovative methods to educate and inspire our youngsters.

Linda teaches pre-school boys

Sara Esserman Melville is teaching Hebrew, Prayers Jewish History and Literature. For many of us that had a less than perfect Jewish education or were raised in other traditions learning Jewish history, values, concepts and ritual with the children are essential. B'nai Mitzvah children will continue to also need a private teacher to prepare for their special day. Sara will make referrals to teachers that prepare Children for B"nai Mitzvahs

During this time of Covid we are limiting our teaching to a small group of children continuing their learning on Zoom. As soon as it is safe to teach in our Shul classrooms we will be happy to include new students and expand our school
