not your parent's hebrew school

Our Center for Jewish Learning (CJL) is a hub of activity in which our students actively engage in the learning process.  Our K-7th grade offers a spiraled Judaica curriculum with each grade expanding and advancing the content and skills gained in the previous year.  At the CJL, children may get a chance to experience the following:

  • Putting Jonah on trial as to whether he was a good prophet
  • Learning how to be a mensch
  • Participating in video conferences with schools in Israel with children of similar ages
  • Participating in a mock Jewish wedding
  • Student v. faculty/clergy Ga-Ga (Israeli game) tournament

A fresh, dynamic classroom experience is augmented with thoughtful off-campus trips to heighten learnings and allow our teachers to explore with our students. Use this link to learn more about our faculty members and their experiences.
