At Temple Sholom, we believe study should:

  • Be a personal and spiritual engagement that connects the mind and the heart - it should move each of us to more fully encounter ourselves, each other, and God.
  • Strengthen us as a community and inspire each of us individually and collectively to increase our level of Jewish involvement/observance and do our part to repair the world.
  • Reflect our commitment to Israel and to the Jewish people.
  • Provide a learning experience in a variety of methods to address the needs of the individual child. 

 


The overall educational goals of the Temple Sholom Religious School, which emerge from our mission and the principles above, are:

  1. Initiate our children into the study of Torah with the specific intention of finding the place where text and self meet — to enable a child to discover in our tradition authentic resources for relating to the most important issues and needs in his or her life.
  2. Create meaningful and developmentally appropriate prayer experiences which can guide our children toward the joy and power of the worship experience.
  3. Utilize Hebrew language in a meaningful manner.
  4. Build a community based on the principle of gemilut hasadim —deeds of loving kindness — in which members learn to treat one another with compassion and kindness and to reach out to those outside of the community in need of care.
  5. Support parents in joining their children on a journey of Jewish growth and discovery by creating family programs that include parents in all aspects of learning.
  6. Offer experiences outside of the classroom through which children and families can discover first hand the joy of living in sync with the rhythms of Jewish life (Shabbat, holidays) as part of a Jewish community.
  7. Cultivate excellence in our teaching staff so that our teachers become primary resources in meeting the above goals.
