Giving children the gift of a Jewish future
Directed by Dr. Joel M. Hoffman — a nationally-recognized pioneer in Jewish education — our program combines a cutting-edge curriculum with individualized attention to help children discover the joy of Judaism for themselves.
Our innovative program has three parts, each designed with flexibility in mind because we know that everyone’s circumstances are unique:
Sunday-Morning Religious School — Grades K-6 meet in-person (safety considerations permitting) on Sunday mornings from 9:30 am to 11:30 am.
Weekday-Afternoon Hebrew Education — Grades 4-7 receive individualized one-on-one Hebrew education via Zoom to prepare for bar/bat mitzvah.
Post-Bar/Bat Mitzvah — After bar/bat mitzvah, students in grades 8-12 meet from time to time, with the schedule determined in advance in conjunction with the participants and their parents.
In addition, a student’s Jewish journey is punctuated by three important events:
Bar/Bat mitzvah — Usually at age 13, celebrating the beginning of Jewish adulthood.
Confirmation — Usually in 10th grade, marking a commitment to Jewish learning.
