Carolyn Moore Mooso, Temple Sinai’s Educator, leads our Religious and Hebrew School Programs. Our school programs are designed for pre-Kindergarten through 10th Grade youngsters.
A program of once-a-month workshops on Jewish holidays and other important Jewish themes is available to three and four year olds accompanied by at least one parent or grandparent.
Sunday religious school classes are available for students in kindergarten through seventh grade. Curricula are designed around specific Judaic topics that vary for different grades.
Hebrew education typically begins in fourth grade. Our Hebrew curriculum comes from Behrman House, the world’s largest publisher of Jewish educational materials. Its focus is fluent reading and comprehension of the basic prayer service.
Bar Mitzvah / Bat Mitzvah
Students prepare for Bar or Bat Mitzvah over several years through the regular Hebrew and Religious School curricula, and during the Bar or Bat Mitzvah year they attend an additional special class. Each Bar or Bat Mitzvah student also receives several hours of private tutoring.
Students in eighth through tenth grades attend Metivta, our high school program leading to Confirmation. Students select four quarter-long courses each year. Tenth graders prepare their own service of Confirmation.
Opportunities for Adult Education and Family Education occur throughout the year. Watch the Scribe and this site’s Calendars and announcements of these programs.
