At The Emanuel Synagogue, our students learn how to apply Torah in today’s world and feel at ease in any synagogue environment.
We teach Judaism’s philosophy of love and respect for the world through Tikun Olam (repairing the world), by aiming to leave it a better place. Through social justice projects, environmental programs, and a fostering of general respect for other living things our Religious School families learn to incorporate Tikun Olam values into every day life.
We use a hands-on, experiential approach to all learning styles in order to bring Judaism to life with fun programs like “The Haunted Shul” and “Purim-palooza.”
HTM is a language acquisition strategy in which students learn Hebrew by hearing and responding to Hebrew commands as early as Kindergarten. This program is taught completely in Hebrew and introduces it in a playful and meaningful way. HTM provides an aural foundation for Hebrew that opens the door to more facile Hebrew decoding and reading. As they progress through the program, the students take on the role of teacher and give instruction to their peers.
To the Mitzvah… and Beyond is a program that prepares our b’nai mitzvah students and their families for their Bar/Bat Mitzvah – and beyond. The program helps put the Mitzvah in Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
Jewish Day School families are encouraged to be part of all our family programs. Contact our Director of Youth and Family Learning for more details.
We are committed to providing a Jewish education for all children, with all kinds of needs.
Jewish children with special learning needs thrive at The Emanuel, as do their families. We have experience in successfully guiding children with all sorts of learning needs to B’nai Mitzvah and beyond.
A Resource Room teacher and one on one para-professionals are available for assistance including enrichment and ongoing help. Parents work with our Director of Youth and Family Learning to create a plan so that every child in our program can be successful.
Our goal is to foster a love of Judaism and the desire to lead a Jewish life. For additional questions contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
