    • Foster an appreciation and understanding of our shared responsibility for the future of Jewish people
    • Instill confidence in participating in religious services
    • Understand and value the essential principles of Conservative Judaism
    • Affirm the importance of Israel to the Jewish people

To reach these objectives, our curriculum focuses on:

    • Reading and writing skills
    • Prayers and service
