In response to COVID-19, we are temporarily closing our buildings until further notice. All Kabbalat Shabbat services will be held online via Live Stream. Check the Temple Emanuel calendar for the latest information on scheduled events and virtual connection opportunities.
Here at Temple Emanuel, we welcome families from all Jewish backgrounds. We are committed to providing engaging, experiential Jewish learning, as well as the opportunity to connect and create friendships with other Jewish children. To better accomplish these goals, we have lengthened the Religious School day to provide more learning and engagement opportunities for our children, with no increase to tuition.
To protect you, your children, and Temple Emanuel, your registration must be completed by the first day of Religious School. Registration will now include emergency contact information and acknowledgement of our Immunization Policy.
Our curriculum, which is designed to provide engaging, experiential based Jewish learning as well as the opportunity to connect and create friendships with other Jewish children, will focus on:
Kindergarten – Grade 8 – Students learn about core areas of Jewish life: Prayer and Synagogue, Celebrations, Tzedakah and Ethics, Israel, and Torah/Bible. These topics will “spiral” through the grades, growing in complexity as the students mature.
Grades 9-11 – Our high school Havayah (“Experience”) class will explore Reform Jewish identity:
How did Reform Jews develop Judaism and make informed decisions?
Balancing Commandment and Choice
Deepening understandings of and connections with the State/Land of Israel
Exploring conceptions of God and godliness
The Havayah program also includes travel experiences throughout the year.
