TEMPLE SINAI RELIGIOUS SCHOOL, WHERE BEING JEWISH IS FUN & MEANINGFUL!
 
We want our children to develop a proud and positive Jewish identity. We want them to feel a strong sense of belonging, by developing strong friendships in a “learning and doing” community of which they are an important part. We want their self-esteem to grow each time they participate in a social action project, making a difference in the world. We want them to recognize they are utilizing age-old Torah values, still relevant to their 21st century lives. We want them to feel great pride in the amazing story of the Jewish people. We want them to wrestle with God ideas that bring personal meaning to communal prayer. We want them to create happy Jewish memories in family programs with their parents. We want them to express the joy of Jewish life through Jewish music, art, story-telling, role-play and cooking. We want them to learn in social groups, using games, learning stations, debate, media and technology.
 
If you want the same for your child and family, come join the Temple Sinai family. We would love to have you with us!
