Under the direction of Julia Levine, the guiding educational philosophy of our Religious School is to instill students with a love of learning, Judaism and commitment to Israel. We seamlessly weave Jewish learning throughout our educational programs, helping them develop the skills and knowledge necessary to observe holiday rituals and participate in services, and read and speak Hebrew. At the completion of their studies, they understand Jewish history and culture, and are involved in Jewish communal needs (Tikkun Olam). Our students are not only educated in the classroom, they are also encouraged and expected to participate in Friday night services, on Shabbat mornings and once a month to attend our Kolot Shabbat services. Each grade level prepares a special Erev Shabbat service for the congregation, where they demonstrate what they’ve learned throughout the year.

This Sunday, March 12, we will have a special short Religious School session with the Temple Ahavat Shalom students before the Purim Carnival. Religious School will begin in the Sanctuary at 9:30. All parents must pick up their children in the Sanctuary at 10:45 am. Students will not be allowed to go to the carnival by themselves, any student who is not picked up by someone over 18 will wait in the Sanctuary with their teacher until they are picked up.
There will be regular Religious School classes on Tuesday, March 14. Please note that on the evening of Tuesday, March 14, Heschel will be using our parking lot. Please plan to park on the side of the main parking lot (near rooms 7, 8, and 9) at pickup.
Make sure to check the Religious School calendar for all the dates we do and do not have Religious School.
This year, there will be a change to our schedule:
