Temple Emanu-El Religious School.

We are committed to creating the finest Jewish learning environment possible.

Our Vision

Conceive of every child as an individual neshama (soul), a unique individual and soul, and treat that child according to his or her particular needs, while affirming the ultimate importance of community.

Create an atmosphere of joyful, dynamic learning that touches the spirit as well as the mind of the learner; while encouraging family participation and creation of a kehillah kedoshah (holy community).

Commit to excellence and consistency in curriculum, teaching, and imparting information regarding our Jewish people’s history, literature, spirituality, culture, values, and ethics, incorporating these Jewish ideals into our everyday lives.

Challenge our clergy, staff, faculty, students, and parents to live according to the highest values of our people — to treat one another ethically, responsibly, sensitively, respectfully, and fairly.

Create young Jewish people who will leave our Temple imbued with a joyful and deep understanding of their Jewish identity; and who will be forever committed to living a joyous and meaningful Jewish life wherever their life-paths take them.

Create a partnership between the Early Childhood Education Center and the Religious School so that the transition from one stage of learning to another fosters continuity.
