Temple Emanuel

Religious School 

The goal of the Temple Emanuel Religious School(TERS) is to help children increase their knowledge about their identification with Reform Judaism. We want them to feel good about being Jewish. To accomplish this, we help the students to become knowledgeable about Judaism – about Jewish history, customs, rituals, community and values – within a caring, safe, active, and fun learning environment. Preschoolers (four-year-olds) through eighth graders attend classes. Tenth, eleventh, and twelfth graders are assistants in the school, particularly in the classroom, and ninth graders volunteer in the classrooms and the office. We have special classes that are arranged for Bar and Bat Mitzvah candidates. Children and their parents are welcome to visit the school before enrolling.  *** Special note for 2020 - To avoid the risk of spreading Covid19, we are currently holding Religious School Classes virtually ***
