Hebrew School:

Temple Emanu-El's Hebrew School program is appropriate for children ages 5-13. Our Hebrew School seeks to instill in each student a feeling of connection to the Jewish people, pride in our heritage, and love of Torah.

We try to accomplish these goals by:

  1. Teaching your child basic reading knowledge of Hebrew, emphasizing key words and phrases found in the prayer book;
  2. Teaching your child to be comfortable with and to participate in services by being familiar with the Friday night and Shabbat morning services, as well as selections from the Holiday services;
  3. Teaching your child key sections of the Torah on which our outlook and traditions are based, emphasizing the moral and ethical lessons that are derived from them;
  4. Teaching Jewish observances, including holiday customs and the life cycle.

Our curriculum also includes holiday celebrations, special programs, workshops and trips.

Our Rabbi, Princpal and Hebrew School Teachers have an exciting and educational program for our students!
