The Temple Adath B’nai Israel Religious School seeks to provide a Religious education that is:
- age appropriate
- identity building for students pre-k through Confirmation.
Because God, Torah, and Israel are major tenets of Judaism, these core concepts are the foundation of our school curriculum. The enduring understandings we seek to foster are a sense of God, a love of Torah, and a connection with the people and land of Israel.
Our students experience Judaism through holiday celebrations, performing mitzvot (commandments/ethical living), participating in Shabbat worship, and g’milut chasadim (acts of loving kindness). Active participation in Jewish learning is a pathway to building community, enriching spirituality, sustaining Jewish continuity and tikun olam (repairing the world).
