Our goals are to:

  1. Help students and families discover the ways Judaism is relevant to their own lives.
  2. Build a solid foundation of Jewish knowledge, and experiences with that knowledge, to develop a strong and positive Jewish identity.
  3. Instill Jewish values in a way that students can apply them to their contemporary lives.
  4. Engage entire families in their Jewish journey.
  5. Create a Kehila Kedoshah – a holy community whose culture celebrates each person’s unique Jewish expression and contributions.
  6. Inspire our community to add richness and meaning to their lives by passing on the wisdom and tools our Jewish heritage offers us.
  7. Prepare our students to be confident prayer leaders and teachers of Torah for their b’nei mitzvah service.

Our doors are always open and you are always welcome. ! ברוכים הבאים
