At Temple Emanu-El we believe that Jewish education should be engaging, meaningful and memorable.

Overall Religious School Goals:

  • 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

Temple Emanu-El teachers look forward to engaging with their students in a variety of modalities; experiential learning, discussion, hands on projects, as well as reading texts and using a variety of methods to analyze them.

The religious school serves the needs of children who are entering kindergarten through grade 8. Generally, students meet with their teachers in person twice weekly, once on Sunday mornings and once on Tuesday afternoons. In addition, families participate in Shabbat B'Yahad each month, a program that encompasses the warmth and community of Shabbat with a variety of learning and prayer opportunities appropriate for various age participants.

This year, classes will be held virtually, at least through December. Students in Kindergarten through grade 2 will meet with their teachers on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:45. This will include a school assembly from 9:30-9:45. Students in grade 2 will have an additional session mid-week to learn Hebrew decoding. Students in grades 3-7 will learn Hebrew on Tuesdays from 4:30-5:15. Small group Hebrew lessons for all 2nd-7th graders will be held weekly at the convenience of our families.

We are confident that when our children graduate, they will have been exposed to a variety of perspectives, have been academically challenged, and have gained important life skills. They will have been given a solid Jewish foundation in a setting which fosters the development of a positive Jewish identity, and we believe the variety of their experiences at school will help them develop into mature, ethical young adults.

Please contact the school pricipal, Ronni Saltzman Guttin, if you would like to learn about our school.
