Our mission is to provide each child the opportunity to form a positive Jewish identity through acquiring skills and values for living a Jewish life, and connecting themselves to the Jewish community. New students are always welcome.

Students from the youngest through the oldest will be exposed to our rich Jewish heritage through art, music, ritual, mitzvot, Hebrew,G-d, history, Israel, holidays and technology.

  • Kindergarten (Gan) and 1st Grade (Aleph) meet Monday 4:30 – 6:00pm
  • Stay & Play is available for children in Kindergarten & Gan, so that they can stay until 6:30 pm and wait for an older sibling.
  • 2nd Grade classes meet Monday from 4:40-6:30pm
  • 3rd-6th grades meet Monday and Wednesday from 4:30 - 6:30pm

Jr. Congregation (2nd-6th Grade) is a twice a month Shabbat service experience with songs, prayer, Parashat HaShavuah, Aliyot and Kiddush. Attendance is required.

Tot Shabbat & Mini-Minyan (Nursery-1st Grade) Age appropriate programs especially designed for our youngest children, with song, shomer Shabbat activities, prayer and snack. Meets 1-2 times monthly.

We believe that a “Hands-On” experiential curriculum is essential to Jewish learning, and woven throughout the program are family programs such as building a Sukkah and making a Tallit together. Parents and children come together to experience, learn and have fun.

  • We accept both member and non-member children in our Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade classes.
  • We strive to meet the educational and social needs of all our students. Please read the section about Special Education if your child has special needs.
