Religious School

Har Shalom’s Religious School is not the Hebrew School you remember! We are a dynamic, engaging and nurturing community that offers Jewish learning for students in pre-K through 12th grade. Students enjoy studying Judaism and Hebrew while connecting to their Jewish heritage and community. Families come together to celebrate the beauty of Shabbat, Jewish holidays and Jewish study.

 

Our students address the topics of Hebrew, holidays, Israel, Tanakh, Values, history and Tfillot in all grades at increasing levels of sophistication in order to achieve deeper levels of meaning and understanding. Our students thrive in our interactive classes which honor multiple styles of learning. We embrace 21 Century Jewish education principles in all grades and strive to create valuable and memorable experiences for our children and their families.

 

Hallmarks of our program include:

  • Small class sizes
  • Responsive Classroom techniques to intentional build community
  • Spiral Curriculum
  • Hebrew Through Movement
  • Hands-On Experiential Education
  • Family Education
  • On-going Professional Development for our teachers

After their B’nai Mitzvah year, our students enter our high school programs: Kesher (8th-10th grade) and Atid (11th & 12th).

Contact us today to learn more about our learning community.
