Religious School

Our religious school is committed to helping your child/children connect and identify with their Jewish heritage

Temple Sinai's religious school is guided by the values and ideals of Reform Judaism. 

We believe experiencing and living our faith is the best way to learn about Judaism.      

We encourage independent thinking while enhancing a positive sense of Jewish identity.

Our approach to learning centers around a relaxed atmosphere which respects the various needs of families.  Under the leadership of our religious school principal our faculty is ready and eager to teach and learn with your child/children.

We understand your child/children is/are involved in many activities, school and their various interests.  Being aware of those commitments and that many of our parents work, we are sensitive to your needs.

Our religious school meets one day a week: Sunday from 9:00AM-12:15PM.

We encourage families to enroll their child/children in religious by 3rd grade to help enrich their growing curiosity about religion.

During the year, our religious school classes participates in:

  • Sukkah decorating
  • Simchat Torah celebration and Consecration
  • Purim Speil, making mishloach manot baskets and fun
  • Family Chanukiot/Menorah lighting
  • Monthly Shabbat dinners
  • Co-leading Shabbat Worship
  • And more…

Services

The first Friday of the month is our Family Shabbat Worship Service.  Each month a different grade co-leads services with the Rabbi.  A fun and lively play replaces a sermon, in which the students participate.  All grades are encouraged to attend this service which is at 7:30 PM.

You child/children will: 

  • Make friends
  • Learn about our customs, traditions and heritage through classroom participation, art and music
  • Will learn Hebrew to (co)lead Shabbat worship and to be called to the Torah as a bar/bat mitzvah
  • Experience the riches of the Jewish year as a community
  • Celebrate holidays
  • Explore Judaism and Torah as age-appropriate levels
  • Strengthen their Jewish identity and self-image

Enrollment:

The family of every child must be members of Temple Sinai.  Every child must be registered as a student.  Students new to our religious school will be placed in the grade appropriate for their level of knowledge.  Usually, this grade is concurrent with their secular school grade.

Parent’s Committee:

Our religious school is augmented by the help and energies of our Parent’s Committee.

Parents who volunteer to be on this committee help our religious school function in many ways.
