An Approach to Reach Every Learner While Creating Community

Temple Shalom Religious School offers an exciting, integrated spiraling curriculum that includes studies in Jewish values, Torah, Jewish Holidays & Festivals, Israel, Prayer & God, Hebrew and more.  Each year, our teachers guide our students as they add onto their knowledge of Judaism through discussion, multimedia and hands-on activities.  Family Education Programs, field trips and social events make our students feel connected to Temple Shalom and to their Jewish world.  Our students learn in a warm, nurturing Jewish community that creates lifelong friendships and lasting connections.  Classes are available for kindergarten thru 12th grade (membership is not required until 3rd grade).
