Religious School: Mission

2nd Graders with Lulav

The mission of The Joseph & Belle Braun Anshe Emet Religious School is to prepare our students for a lifetime of involvement in the Jewish community. We seek to cultivate a passion for study, prayer, Jewish values, and ethics, love of Israel, and commitment to tikkun olam (repairing the world), in an atmosphere of warmth and inclusiveness.

The Braun Religious School achieves its mission by:

  • Developing a spirit of Klal Yisrael (peoplehood);
  • Teaching an understanding of the concepts of mitzvot (commandments), tzedakah and tikkun olam (repairing the world);
  • Instilling in our children a meaningful relationship to the State of Israel; and,
  • Giving our students the tools to see the world through a Jewish lens.

The curriculum is designed with the understanding that students attend religious school as a means of supplementing the spiritual basis of home and synagogue life. Family is the place where so much of the formation of ideas and practices occur. We encourage adult learning, which parallels the school's aims and curriculum. We believe that what our students study is relevant to their daily lives and that through their learning, they will begin to make their own Jewish decisions from a standpoint of knowledge and commitment.
