Kol Emet’s religious school is a vibrant program in which our children explore being Jewish in fun and meaningful ways. The school’s devoted and enthusiastic teachers – many of whom are congregants and parents or grandparents of KE students – cultivate a friendly and warm environment in which each child is known and nurtured. We introduce our youngest members – as well as their families – to Jewish values, culture, history, rituals, and language through a wide array of dynamic and creative modalities.
Our school is committed to welcoming our diverse Jewish community.
We understand Judaism as a CIVILIZATION. In addition to religious beliefs and practices, Jewish civilization includes art, music, food, language, literature, ethics, social justice, and more. Jewish people live in MULTIPLE CIVILIZATIONS today, and we encourage children and families to bring their “whole selves” to class.
Our school thrives on the values we teach and the values our children learn from their families. We know schedules are hectic, and families are busy, but we encourage all families to get involved in the best way they can. Our main goal is for our children – and their families – to be engaged in Judaism in today’s world (and to have fun)!
Weekly classes are taught by professionals and madrichim. Madrichim are post Bnei Mitzvah students who are well versed in Jewish education. This model – “giving back to their community and remaining engaged in Jewish life after seventh grade” – connects our students with their madrichim. We often hear our younger students say they want to be a madrich/a after their Bnei Mitzvah!
