We are delighted that you are considering Congregation Sinai’s Religious School for your child’s Judaic education.
Our program offers your family a warm, nurturing environment where your child can thrive and grow.
We strive to give children and families the tools and experiences that will help them to live a Jewish life. We endeavor to impart a love for Judaism and for Eretz Yisrael, engagement with God, and a commitment to mitzvot (good deeds) and tikkun olam (making the world a better place). Students learn Hebrew reading skills in an individualized setting to meet their needs. To give you a better sense of what we teach, I've added curriculum diagrams to the bottom of this page.
This year, we have an exciting new change coming to the Sinai Religious School. After extensive feedback collected during last year’s strategic planning initiative, community conversations, one-on-one discussions, and the religious school parent survey, the school committee and Sinai staff have developed a plan to enhance our students’ experiential learning. Once a month, religious school will be held on Shabbat morning instead of Sunday morning. This will give our students the opportunity to put their learning into real-time practice while celebrating Shabbat with their friends and the entire Sinai community.
Shabbat is central to Judaism. In addition to once a month Shabbat School we also have once a month Youth service, October through June. Specific dates can be found on our religious school calendar. Storytime for young children is held at 11 am every Shabbat in the religious school hallway. Readers are volunteers, and we encourage parents to read as part of the family Shabbat experience.
At Congregation Sinai, we form a partnership between parents, students, and the Religious School. We look forward to embarking on this journey together.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
