Kol Ami Religious School is an experience like no other!
At Kol Ami, we believe that Jewish living begins with Jewish learning. In our Religious School, we strive to impart knowledge through active learning, to challenge our students to think and create, both in formal and informal settings. Our goal is to help our students build a solid foundation in the basics of Judaism, to inspire lifelong Jewish commitment, and to create an appreciation for Jewish values, culture, and history.
Our curriculum is designed to teach children the building blocks of their Jewish identities, including Hebrew, Jewish history, holidays, tzedakah, life cycle, Torah, Midrash, connection to Israel, and Jewish ethics. Hebrew instruction is fast-paced and individualized, allowing students to work alone or in groups and set the pace of their learning.
At Kol Ami, Jewish learning is a family affair. Our one-of-a-kind Shabbat morning Religious School is designed to engage the whole family, so that families can “come to shul together.” While kids are in classes, many of their parents gather for breakfast, for our well-attended and highly-spirited Torah study, and for Shabbat morning services. The last half hour of the day is Shabbat Family T’fillah (“SFT”) in which students and parents gather to pray, sing, and learn together. It is a great way to get to find out what’s happening in the classroom, meet other families, and celebrate Shabbat with your child.
