The Hebrew program, Mitkadem, uses a self-paced and child-centered approach to teaching and learning Hebrew and prayer. This allows each student to work individually with a teacher or tutor to learn Hebrew according to his/her own ability.
CHAI, the Judaic program, is centered on the Torah, Avodah (making sacred connections to G-‐d, self and the community) and G’milut (making the world a better place).
Chavaya, a new post-‐Bar/Bat Mitzvah program for teens in grades 8 and 9, will teach leadership skills and allow students to work with the Rabbi on an innovative video project.
Recognizing that knowledge of Jewish heritage is necessary to form a serious bond with Judaism, the congregation has made education their highest priority. To this end, Temple Emanuel offers an educational program from preschool through Bar/Bat Mitzvah and confirmation.
The congregation is small enough for members to get to know one another and to have meaningful input into how the synagogue and school operate.
Temple membership is free for the first year for new families with children in pre-school through grade 4.
