GRADES K-7

As the Shema says, one of our most important responsibilities is to teach our tradition to our children. Our Religious School staff take their mission seriously and fulfill it with diligence and love. Students in Grades K-7 begin each class with prayer (tefilah) for parents and students. Students are immersed in Jewish learning through art, music, cooking, and formal classes.

TOT SHABBAT 1st Friday of the month in the temple sanctuary (or out back), for 6:00 pm service, followed by 6:30 pizza dinner outside. Led by Rabbi Luna, this is an early and fun service for young families.
