V’Shinantam L’vanechah – And you should teach your children diligently… Deut. 6:7


We appreciate the honor and privilege of teaching your children, but also know that we are only the partners of our parents in creating meaningful Jewish learning experiences. Therefore, we have a number of programs woven through the curricular year that involve parents and children learning together:

Class Shabbatonim: During the year each class has the opportunity to celebrate Shabbat and engage in family learning; we call it a “Shabbaton.” This year, parents and their children will together study themes that are connected to the formation of the state of Israel. This theme will be tied into our Congregational Celebration of “Israel at 70” on Sunday, April 22. In addition, the students will prepare for their participation in the Shabbat morning service. Following the service, the families always enjoy a festive Kiddush lunch together.

Lifelong Learning Programs: Throughout the year, parents will be able to participate in various and engaging learning opportunities on a Sunday morning from 10:30 a.m. – Noon. The programs include:

  • Lectures by our rabbi and guest speakers on a variety of topics such as Judaism in the environment, lectures by Dr. Peter Hass on the “History of Zionisms” and “Unpacking the Middle East”.
  • School-wide Assemblies: During the course of the year, we have a number of opportunities for our students to share what they are learning in their classes. We gather together in school-wide assemblies, and encourage all parents to attend.

We look forward to and value your input as we develop our programming. Please feel free to contact our Educator, Debbie Chessin, with your questions and suggestions.
