Torat Hayim

Our nationally-recognized Torat Hayim program offers an innovative Jewish learning curriculum designed to involve the whole family, for a meaningful and long-lasting learning experience. When children see their parents study, their own study takes on a greater personal significance.

Torat Hayim at The Emanuel:

– Develops a broad Jewish educational experience for students and parents.
– Offers activities within the synagogue and the family home.
– Provides rich Shabbat Family experiences.
– Facilitates convenient parental involvement.
– Helps fit child’s religious education schedule with lifestyle needs.

Jewish Day School families are encouraged to be part of our Torat Hayim program through attendance at Parent Seminars and Family Shabbatot. Contact our Director of Youth and Family Learning for more details
