The goal of our Religious School program is to have our children identify themselves proudly and joyfully as Jews by teaching them to understand the rich culture, history, ethics, beliefs, and heritage of our religion and people. It is the desire of Temple Jeremiah to provide a meaningful Jewish education to every student in our school. We want our children to learn in an environment that is warm and our program to reflect the best of contemporary pedagogy.
Religious School is held in two sessions on Sunday mornings:
9:00 – 10:45 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Volunteer assistance is needed in the office with school documents and data entry as well as organizing and setting up for grade level Shabbat dinners. Volunteers are also needed to be Room Parents whose responsibilities include: chaperoning field trips, organizing volunteers for in-class projects, encouraging parents and children in the class to get to know one another (by organizing, for example, an in-class brunch or class Tikkun Olam project). Experienced volunteers are also needed to substitute teach. For more information on religious school or to volunteer, contact Sheila Greenfield (firstname.lastname@example.org), 847.441.0202.
