At Temple Emanu-El we  believe that Jewish education should be engaging, meaningful and memorable. To that end, we have worked to update our curriculum, plan some special family events and re-structure some of our classes and materials to work within our ever-changing school environment. The overall goals of the religious school are:

  • For children to be able to make decisions in their lives based upon Jewish knowledge and Jewish values
  • To provide students with a toolbox of Jewish wisdom to confront life's joys and challenges
  • To help children develop an identity that anchors them in thousands of years of tradition and with the Jewish people.

The religious school serves the needs of children who are entering kindergarten through grade 8.

Students in grades kindergarten through grade 7 meet on Sundays at Temple Emanu-El from 9:30AM-12:30PM. They focus on T'fila (prayer) skills, music, Jewish history, Torah study, values, holiday study and celebration, and life cycles, among other Jewish topics. Students and teachers also have some time to socialize and enjoy a meal along with its blessings.

Students in grades 2-7 have a remote component to our learning. Most students meet virtually on Tuesdays from 4:30-5:30PM. This remote platform allows us to divide classes into smaller groups and provide convenient scheduling for families.

Students in grade 8 will participate in a program entitles "Tikkun Olam: Our Turn," a curriculum created by Avodah, which addresses many social issues that out teens can relate to. Together with, Rabbi Fel and Cantor Mayer, I am excited to work with the 8th graders to explore the topic of Tikkun Olam, all while creating and implementing a meaningful mitzvah project in their first year living as B'nei Mitzvah, adult members of the Jewish people.

For information, please contact me at or our school secretary, Nancy Wordell at the school office at 401.331.1616. I look forward to connecting with your family!
