Children's Education


Congregation Adath Israel has a deep commitment to Jewish education. We teach grades Kindergarten through 7th grade, including Hebrew studies from 4th grade on.


Kindergarten - Third Grade


The primary grades serve as an orientation for the development of interest and knowledge of Judaism. During the primary years a foundation of concrete Jewish experiences will be introduced. It will enable the young child to gain an acquaintance with Judaism by taking part in a variety of fun activities such as crafts, stories, songs, music, dance and drama.

The following holidays are taught in season: Shabbat, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Chanukah, Tu B’Shevat, Purim, Passover, Yom Ha’atzma’ut (Independence Day), Lag B’Omer and Shavuot.

The primary grades meet once a week on Sunday mornings.


Fourth - Seventh Grades


These grades meet both on Sunday mornings and one afternoon a week. Instruction becomes more extensive in preparing students for their bar and bat mitzvahs as well as the rest of their lives as a Jewish adult. After their individual classes, these grades meet for a 30 minute group session on Sunday mornings emphasizing group participation. The students learn a variety of songs (Hebrew, English and Liturgical) and dance that relate to Shabbat, holidays, Siddur and Israel.
