Our synagogue's rich religious school curriculum includes instruction in Jewish History, Culture, Customs, Ethics, Comparative Religion, Tradition, Holidays, Israel, Bible, and the Holocaust. Teaching is designed to stimulate student participation, connection and interest and includes the use of audio and visual aids, art, music and drama. There are special programs and workshops. Throughout the year, every grade has the opportunity to lead Family Shabbat services.

To become either a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, students complete four years of Hebrew study. First year students learn the basics of the language, while in second and third year they study Hebrew vocabulary and prayers. The fourth year focuses specifically on Bar or Bat Mitzvah preparation.
