 Dear Religious School Families,

 Wow, what a year we have had! With 2020-2021 behind us, we are looking   ahead to our 2021-2022 religious school year with great excitement. Our plan   is to resume in-person classes in the fall (barring another global pandemic   or major decline in the status of the current pandemic!) and to have a   wonderful time learning together. 

 If you can, take a few minutes to check out the video below that explains the program for next year and please feel warmly invited to reach out to me if you have any questions.

I am delighted to share a few highlights of the coming year:

  • All students, K-12, will come together Monday afternoons from 4:30-6:30
  • Hands-on, fun, interactive models of teaching and learning will be implemented such as cooking, building with LEGO, visual arts, and gamification
  • Level based Hebrew learning that will take place online or in-person
  • Detailed and expanded Judaic studies curriculum with clear and articulated expectations for learning outcomes 
  • Pizza Dinner Included!

This year is not only going to be fun, but it will be meaningful as well. I believe that a powerful Jewish learning experience is one that builds connection, inspires a thirst for more information, and is relevant to the learner’s life. As a team of educators, we will strive to provide these experiences for our students each and every time we gather. 

Join us!
