Religious School: General Goals

2nd Graders with Lulav

Engagement

To create a learning atmosphere that is positive, inclusive, and inspiring – a place where kids and families want to be, with affirmative echoes that last.

Relationships

To foster ongoing community connections – student to student, student to staff, parent to parent and family to family. 

Jewish Knowledge

To effectively guide students toward an essential Jewish literacy, including comfort with basic liturgy, phonetic Hebrew skill, tools of Jewish celebration and commemoration, and familiarity with Jewish texts and ideas. 

Relevance

To create a personalized educational Jewish experience, one that embraces difference, incorporates choice, and speaks to the interests and needs of a diverse community of learners.
