Religious School



Sharon Fricano, Education Director


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, observance of customs and rituals, while encouraging students to live ethically, performing mitzvot, and acts of Tikkun Olam. We nurture a connection, commitment, and solidarity with Israel. We build a strong temple community by fostering the partnership between spiritual leaders, teachers, students, and congregants.

Our Religious School meets on Sunday mornings and supplements Hebrew learning through individual and/or small group tutoring (virtual and in-person) during the week and online practice sessions. 

Temple Tikvah Chai School
Chai School — A dedicated program for eighth through twelfth-grade students, our curriculum focuses on discussing the pertinent issues of the day, studying a variety of topics, participating in many social action activities, and attending NFTY NAR events and weekend retreats.

Many of our Chai school students earn community service credits by serving as madrichim, or student teachers, in our Religious School. 

Confirmation occurs at the culmination of the tenth grade.
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.

Monthly Junior Congregations and grade services build student’s confidence in participating in and helping to lead services. 

All student’s study for their B’nai Mitzvah with Rabbi Sheinberg and in addition to reading from the Torah and Haftorah, they lead the service on the morning of their B’nai Mitzvah.

Special Education
We provide a Jewish experience for all children and offer dedicated special education staff to support students who are not accustomed to being mainstreamed. Our staff is experienced in meeting the needs of children with special needs, and we provide push-in support, as needed.

We provide differentiated instruction to meet the needs of all learners. 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.
