The goals of our school are designed to offer each student the opportunity to:

  • Develop the reading and writing skills necessary for synagogue participation and understanding basic Hebrew
  • Gain a sense of spiritual and cultural kinship with Israel and the Jewish people
  • Foster the desire to participate in services, holiday celebrations and rituals at home and in the synagogue with the larger community.
  • Encourage a sense of involvement in Jewish community life through curricular and extra-curricular activities as well as opportunities to perform “acts of kindness” (G’milut Chasadim) and contribute to “righteous causes” (Tzedakah)


Learn and Play the Jewish Way!

  • Let’s start from the very beginning with our youngest class in Neve Shalom Religious School. The opportunity is ripe for newness and growth. The topics will center around: *Shabbat, Havdalah (Shabbat on Sunday will consist of a mini Shabbat service where the children learn basic brachot, beginning tefillot, & Shabbat songs). *Chagim/Holidays
  • *Middot & Mitzvot/Attributes & Commandments. Ethics such as:
  • Kibud av Va’em=Respecting your mother and father
  • Hachnosot Orchim=Welcoming Guests
  • Bikur Cholim=Visiting the Sick
  • Hashavot Aveida=Returning a Lost Object
  • Be’sever Panim Yafot = Greeting Everyone with a Smile
  • *Singing songs with Jewish content
  • *Tefillah/ Prayer
  • *Brachot/blessings
  • *See-purim /stories
  • *Introduction to basic Hebrew words: Ima/mother. Abba/father. Yeladim/children. Hashem/G-d.
  • *Hebrew colors, body parts.
