Temple Anshe Sholom’s goal for Jewish education is to foster a strong Jewish identity to reinforce faith in God, love of Torah, and identification with Klal Israel (כְּלַל יִשְׂרָאֵל), the Jewish people.
We believe that Judaism meaningfully addresses the challenges and questions confronting the human spirit. Included in the mission of our Religious School is to help our students form bonds with other Jewish students and adults and to foster a true love of being a Jew. We believe Hebrew is essential for enabling the student to understand and participate in communal prayer and to promote a feeling of kinship with Jews around the world.
T.A.S. RELIGIOUS SCHOOL: What to expect?
The goal of Jewish education at Temple Anshe Sholom is the deepening of Jewish experience and knowledge, in order to strengthen faith in God, love of Torah, and identification with Klal Yisrael, the Jewish people. We believe that Judaism meaningfully addresses the challenges and questions confronting the human spirit. and only through knowledge can a Jew successfully seek these answers. This year, we are providing engaging learning experiences in a mix of in-person and virtual formats, in order to provide our students with the following:
Familiarity with Jewish sources, an appreciation of the Jewish calendar and life cycle, a deepened understanding of Jewish community, culture and heritage, and an awareness of our relationship with Israel and Jews around the world, as well as Hebrew instruction to enable students to understand and participate in communal prayer.
