Temple Tikvah Religious School


Temple Tikvah’s Religious School creates positive Jewish memories that our students and parents cherish for life. Our school provides instruction and develops student mastery of Jewish history, prayer, and observance of customs and rituals, all while encouraging students to live ethically and perform mitzvot and acts of Tikkun Olam. We nurture a connection, commitment, and solidarity with Israel. 

Our Religious School meets on Sunday mornings and supplements Hebrew learning through one-on-one virtual and/or in-person instruction during the week and online practice sessions. 

Our youth group meets regularly for fun and community service activities, and we hold a variety of family programs throughout the school year. Monthly Junior Congregations and grade services build students' confidence in participating in and helping to lead services.

All students' study for their Bet Mitzvah with Rabbi Sheinberg and, in addition to reading from the Torah and Haftorah, they lead the service on the morning of their Bet Mitzvah.

We build a strong temple community by fostering the partnership between spiritual leaders, teachers, students, and congregants.

Post Bet Mitzvah

Our program for eighth- through twelfth-grade students focuses on maintaining students’ connection to Judaism and living an ethical life.  Students join Rabbi Sheinberg for group discussions, participate in community service activities and social action projects, and attend NFTY NAR events.  Many of our teens earn community service credits by serving as madrichim, or student teachers, in our Religious School. 

Confirmation occurs at the culmination of the tenth grade. Our High School-age students have the opportunity to participate in the Religious Action Center for Reform Judaism’s (RAC) social action program in Washington, D.C.

Parent Connection
Temple Tikvah Religious School families help plan and participate in many events and support the school through an active PTA and Religious School Committee. Parents volunteer their time to prepare and participate in school-wide holidays and Kollels – where parents and their children join together on a Sunday morning to study Jewish themes and to participate in scheduled family programs. All parents are welcome to join our Religious School Committee, which meets at various times throughout the year on Sunday mornings during Religious School.

Special Education
We provide a Jewish learning experience for all children and offer support for students with learning challenges. Our staff is experienced in meeting the needs of children with special needs, and we provide push-in support, as needed.

Rabbi Sheinberg works individually with families of special needs students to provide a Bet Mitzvah experience appropriate for each student.  Our children’s religious and spiritual education strives to meet the challenges of the 21st century by providing an enriching, supportive, and joyful atmosphere.  At Temple Tikvah, we welcome and cherish your participation and involvement.
