Religious School and Youth Groups

From Pre-K through Grade 12, we provide a strong grounding in Jewish ethics, history, texts, Hebrew, culture and ritual. We want our students to feel that Judaism is relevant to their lives, to understand how Jewish principles and belief in social justice can guide them in their relationships within their families, with friends, and with the wider world.

Contact Alex Tansky, Director of Education for more information about our outstanding Religious School program.

Welcome to the Village Temple

village temple entry

Come as you are.  Discover who you are.

The Village Temple is a place for kesher – connection.  It is a home for contemporary Reform Jews who are seeking connections to Torah and the search for spiritual fulfillment, links between past and present and one generation to the next, a bridge between the downtown Reform community with Israel and the world, and the balance between our daily lives and the “turn off your cellphone” respite of Shabbat.

 We invite all who wish to join us to enter our doors: Jews by birth, Jews by choice, interfaith families. Inside you will find a community of people who are on a quest to reshape Shabbat and holiday worship, reinvigorate Jewish learning, and renew our commitment to tikkun olam through social action and justice.

Religious School at the Village Temple

Our innovative education program aims to instill in our children a lifelong commitment to Jewish learning, culture and community. With our experiential and flexible camp-inspired education program, we engage students through stories and songs, Hebrew prayers and music, fun games, art and cooking. The Village Temple is known for our excellent Bar/Bat Mitzvah preparation, which encourages each student to connect with Jewish values in a personal, meaningful way, through learning about Torah, ethics, ritual, and the state of Israel.

2017-2018/5778 School year registration is open now! Click here to regsiter online or call Temple office! Learn more about the Religious School curriculum here
