Religious School

Welcome

Our program is diverse, fun, interactive, and creative.  We use informal, active, and experiential lessons to make Judaism come alive, and to connect Judaism to the lives of our students and families.

We encourage students to question and challenge their beliefs. Students learn about the complexity of Torah and Israel through debate and constant inquiry. They become exposed to the rhythms of the Jewish calendar and Jewish holidays by living them and relating them to their everyday interests.

One of the most important goals of our program is not only to empower Jewish learners, but also to create community among our students and families.  In our program, families experience the joys and challenges of life alongside one another, and we strive to make sure that students of all backgrounds and abilities are welcomed and included, celebrated and cherished.

We look forward to welcoming you to our community!
Rabbi Lisa Berney
