Family Involvement

At its core, Jewish learning is a family endeavor.  The material and experiences that your child encounters within the classroom are only one piece of their Jewish education.  Your involvement in Temple Aliyah, your participation in religious services and your family’s home based Jewish experiences are critical to your child’s education.   We all share the responsibility for transmitting Jewish traditions and values to our children, and we look forward to partnering with you throughout the year.  We encourage you to volunteer in the school, to be part of a Temple Aliyah committee and to join us for programming and religious services.
