FAQs / Do you have a Hebrew school?

We have lots of learning opportunities for children on Shabbat and during the week, but we don’t have a conventional Hebrew school.  We believe that children learn best in a living Jewish context, with adult role models who they feel deeply connected to.  We feel that being dropped off after school is not an ideal way to achieve that living context.  So we emphasize family learning instead.  We have classes for children together with their parents on Sunday mornings and during the week, and we have children’s learning services on Shabbat, in which kids can grow in their Judaism knowing that their parents are growing in their own religious lives at the same time in the same building.
