Religious School

Our Philosphy

At JRC’s Religious School, students and teachers are happy and engaged. Although we believe it’s important that school be fun, we’re serious about our responsiblity to partner with parents to cultivate the Jewish values that will serve our children throughout their lives, in their personal relationships and as global citizens. Like many congregations, we consider ourselves “a community of learners” and at JRC, the emphasis is on the word “community.”

Jewish education is a lifelong pursuit involving the heart, the mind and the soul. The Religious School provides JRC children with the building blocks they need to engage throughout their lives in Jewish exploration, community and activism.

Staff and Programs


We offer programs for students ages 3-18, ranging from Sunday morning Jewish enrichment through a monthly high school program. We have a loyal and loving teaching staff, many of whom have been at JRC for more than ten years. Pre-K though 6th graders spend time with clergy at least once each week.



  • Pre-K through Sixth grade, students attend on Sundays from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
  • Third grade through Sixth grade, students attend on Tuesday evenings from 4:15 pm to 6:00 pm.
  • The High School program multiple times each month.
