Religious School

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.

  • Interfaith families
  • Blended families
  • Multi-generational families
  • Same-sex families
  • Single-parent families
  • Interracial families
  • Nuclear families
  • LGBTQIA+ Individuals
  • All abilities

The children who grow up in our community are nurtured and celebrated as they mature and reveal themselves in all their wonderful glory. Our school proudly supports all students, and addresses their individual needs and passions. We believe that Judaism’s longevity is a tribute to its ability to evolve as Jewish people dance within the wider world in which they live, and we embrace that process.

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!

We would be happy to have you join Kol Emet and our religious school.  Please contact Sue Weiner,  215-493-8522 ext. 103, Religious School Director, to ask questions, take a tour, or just say hi!
