Our inspiring and dynamic Hebrew School provides a warm and welcoming anchor for young families to come together and connect to Jewish synagogue life here in the Poconos.In accordance with the standards of the conservative movement, attendance at our school is mandatory from the age of 8 for a child to have a Bar/Bat Mitzvah in our Synagogue. Students and their families are required to attend services at least twice a month studying for Bar/BAt Mitzvah as well as going a mitzvah project. All of our students by the time they become Bar or Bat Mitzvah can read basic, have a familiarity with the prayers, holidays, Jewish history, the State of Israel and ethical norms demanded of the Jewish committment to Torah and Jewish values.
Our classes are small and inviting. Our teachers are friendly and inspiring. Our curriculum stess the ability to read Hebrew prayers as wll as learn about Jewish History, holiday observances and Jewish songs and melodies.Our school year coincides with our local public school calendar. We offer a Pre K-6th graduated curriculum. We recently acquired a Media Center which enables us to show high quality educational films on holidays, Israel, Jewish culture and history.
Music is a basic component each week as we have a well rounded arts and crafts curricular supplementation. we meet on the first Saturday of each month and every Sunday there after.
We strongly encourage parents and grandparents to learn together with their children or grandchildren. People of all ages are encuraged to attend on Shabbat morning.
