Parents and teachers form a crucial partnership in completing this mitzvah. Our fine teachers work very hard to provide a fun, challenging and interesting experience for your child. We use many means to help forge a positive and educated Jewish identity. Our classes incorporate drama, art, music, games, films, books, stories, and special guests.
We are very privileged to use a curriculum that was created by the Education Department of the Goldring/Woldenberg Institute of Southern Jewish Life out of Jackson, Mississippi. This manual explains the school goals and curriculum as designed with input from the ISJL, Rabbi, and teachers.
