Lifelong Learning

Temple Shir Shalom prides itself on being a community of learners. From our weekly “Tish” study group on Shabbat to the many adult education classes and mini-courses taught by our Rabbis throughout the year, there is something for everyone.

Interfaith families or those with minimal Jewish backgrounds are encouraged to explore their Judaism in a warm and caring environment. In keeping with our commitment to be a house of study, we invite you to take part in the many learning opportunities here at Shir Shalom.

Our Religious School (Shoresh) offers a comprehensive Hebrew and Judaic education for children in Pre-K through High School. Our religious school program prepares children for Bar and Bat Mitzvah while providing a foundation for further studies. Our innovative Madrichim program meets monthly for student in grades 7 and 8 and consists of informal camp-style retreats and social action projects to build a stronger community.

Our High School program focuses on teens being Jewish in a non-Jewish world and making Judaism relevant in the modern world. A more detailed description of our educational offerings can be viewed in the School Handbook.
