The mission of Sinai Temple Religious School is to provide a positive, stimulating, and creative learning environment which facilitates the development of active and enthusiastic Jewish youth. This is achieved through providing an excellent learning environment, materials, and faculty, as well as an atmosphere conducive to life-long Jewish learning.
The goal is to foster a strong and positive Jewish identity and commitment to living a Jewish life. Our hope is that students develop a strong sense of what it means to be Jewish and to have a strong commitment to Judaism and Jewish life that carries through to adult life.
We teach our young people the importance of God and Torah. Students are instructed on and exposed to Jewish religious practice and prayers, Jewish holidays and customs, Jewish history, and the Hebrew language. We aim to foster a commitment to Israel and social responsibility.
Important information about the religious school can be found in the Parent Handbook – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy.
RELIGIOUS SCHOOL CALENDAR
For calendar dates, please see the Sinai Temple Calendar tab. A Sinai Temple Religious School calendar will be shared with all parents soon after we receive and process completed registration materials.
There are opportunities to be involved in the religious school.
- Parents are asked to help greet students, donate bagels for Sinai Cafe and run Sinai Café 1-2 times throughout the year. Sinai Café is open for students in grades 3-7 during Sunday religious school. Snacks are sold (most things are between $1.00-$2.00 per item). At dismissal, we serve pizza lunch at Sinai Café and encourage families to eat lunch with friends from Sinai Temple. Sinai Café is also open in the morning for parents who want a cup of coffee and bagel – we always have space available for parents to work and socialize.
- If you are a community member who is interested in being involved in Sinai Temple Religious School, please consider volunteering your time and talents. We often times need people to help with greeting students on Sunday mornings, have sub positions (can be paid) available and welcome members of the community who are interested in teaching electives (chuggim) in our intermediate grades. If interested, please contact Rabbi Jody Cook.
- For other opportunities, please contact Rabbi Jody Cook.
