A Meaningful Understanding and Dedicated Commitment

Additionally, we offer Hebrew School classes to Grades 3 through Grades 6 students twice a month on select Friday nights from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm. Afterward, students will join their families for Shabbat services to practice what they are learning in the classroom.
