At Temple Sinai we offer TWO models of Religious School.
Each of these learning models offers a rich and engaging Jewish educational experience.
Conventional Religious School is our child-only, classroom-centered program which meets on Sunday mornings 9:30-11:30am OR
Wednesday afternoons 3:45-5:30pm. This program includes dynamic classrooms with active learning, class choices for students in grades 3-6, music and art, clergy-led services, and occasional family learning programs.
Family Religious School is a whole family learning opportunity open to families with children in grades K-6. Family School meets once/month on Sundays from 2:00-5:00pm. Each month families explore a Jewish learning topic together and then take home a choice of projects and experiences to do as a family that month. Learn more about Family School.
7th graders have their own learning program, Amirim (treetops), which meets weekly on Sunday afternoons from 3:00-5:00pm and includes outings, community service, overnights, and lots of community building, providing a rich complementary community-oriented experience during the bnei mitzvah year.
Hebrew School is required for students in grades 4-6 and is open to interested 3rd graders. Students study Hebrew one-hour a week in small class settings (5-7 students). Hebrew is offered before and after Sunday and Wednesday schools. Students may combine their learning into one day, choose two different days, or combine their weekly Hebrew School with monthly Family School.
Omanut, a supplemental Arts program is available to students in K-3 on Sundays at 11:45am OR Wednesdays at 2:30pm. This program offers a great opportunity for children to spend more time exploring Jewish concepts through the visual arts and is conveniently offered parallel to Hebrew School times to serve families with children in different age groups.
