About our Religious School

One of Kol Haverim's fundamental goals is the transmission of Jewish Heritage. In conjunction with an active Jewish home life, our educational programs strive to increase Jewish literacy, feeling, knowledge and observance and to foster a love for the Reform Jewish way of life.

THE KOL HAVERIM RELIGIOUS SCHOOL inspires our children with a positive and abiding connection to our Jewish faith, history and traditions. The Religious School begins with the Nursery Program and continues through 12th grade with the goal of creating a literate, caring, active Jewish young adult at the time of confirmation.

 

The Kol Haverim Religious School strives to educate our children to become:

  • Jews who affirm their Jewish identity and bind themselves inseparably to our people by word and by deed.
  • Jews who bear witness to the Brit (the covenant between God and the Jewish people) through the practice of mitzvot (commandments) as studied in the Torah and classic Jewish literature, and as interpreted in the light of historic development and contemporary liberal Jewish thought.
  • Jews who affirm their historic bond to Eretz Yisrael, the Land of Israel.
  • Jews who cherish and study Hebrew, the language of the Jewish people.
    Jews who value and practice Tefilah (prayer).
  • Jews who further the causes of Justice, Freedom, and Peace by pursuing Tzedek (righteousness), Mishpat (justice) and Chesed (loving deeds).
  • Jews who celebrate Shabbat, the Holy Days and the festivals and observe the Jewish ceremonies marking the significant occasions in their lives.
  • Jews who esteem their own person and the person of others; their own family and the family of others; their own community and the community of others.
  • Jews who express kinship with K'lal Yisrael by actively seeking the welfare of Jews throughout the world.
  • Jews who support and participate in the life of the synagogue.

Temple Tots meets approximately twice a month, while Grades K - 2 and 7 - 12 meet once a week. Hebrew studies begin in the 2nd grade and Grades 3 - 6 meet twice a week. B'rit Mitzvah instruction is provided in the 7th grade.{B'rit is a non-gender specific term that can be used for males, females, and non-binary gender persons.  You and your family pick the term that is appropriate for your child.}

Family education programs provide opportunities for families to learn and celebrate together through enjoyable experiential and participatory activities.
