Our multi-age school program provides a fun environment where our children learn about Jewish practices, culture, holidays and experience the joy of living Jewishly. We encourage parent participation in our school and family members often join us for holiday celebrations. Many of our children continue on beyond Bar or Bat Mitzvah through confirmation and become teaching assistants and teachers in our school.
The education of our children is central to our mission as a community and is supported by all of our members. Families pay only a modest supply fee per child after the introductory membership period.
Rowan Lepkowsky's Bar Mitzvah on March 4th was a wonderful event led by Rabbinic intern Liora Alban. Rowan led us in a Shabbat service, singing prayers beautifully, and he did an excellent job reading his parsha, Terumah, from the Torah He was joined by his family, including two sets of grandparents, friends, and his Shir Ami community. A joyful luncheon followed with a highlight being his Bar Mitzvah cake shaped and decorated as the Arc of the covenant following the theme of his Torah reading. Mazel Tov Rowan!!
