About Our Religious School
We offer a warm, loving and welcoming program where learning about Judaism is fun and meaningful, and boys and girls are equal and learn together. The rabbi’s goal, as the Director of the Religious School at Temple Sholom, is to instill a love in Judaism in our children. We also want our children to learn that being Jewish involves acting like a mensch -- being respectful of others, sharing graciously, and solving differences through talking. We teach the basics about Judaism including ethics and values, Torah and Bible stories, holidays, Israel, and Holocaust studies for the older kids.
Religious school at Temple Sholom in Monticello for children ages 6 to 13 will start on September 15, 2016. Classes will be held after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays and will be customized to the needs of the children. Instruction includes beginner prayerbook Hebrew, blessings and prayers for bar mitzvah, and introduction to Jewish holidays, history, and culture.
