One crucial component of our formal education program is the Rossy and Richard Shaller Hebrew School, for students in second to 12th grade. Our informal Shabbatonim program begins in third grade and creates unique experiences for all students as they share Shabbat in a camp-like setting. Students are tutored in Shabbat prayers to prepare them for B’nai Mitzvah and beyond. Post B’nai Mitzvah, many students pursue Torah reading skills by studying to earn the prestigious Golden Kepah Award. A select group of students elect to invest time to refine their Torah reading and service leading skills to earn the Yad Hazakah Award. These awards provide the tools for our future community leaders. TiKone USY program synergizes formal and experiential Jewish education into one fluid program. This new program, held on Sundays and Wednesdays, creates opportunities for our teens (eighth to 12th grade) to learn and apply valuable life skills through a Jewish lens.
