Religious School Philosophy

Education Program Core Values

Community – We live our lives embedded in a sacred web of relationships that connect us to each other and the Jewish people at large.

Belonging – Judaism is our spiritual home, the place where we are deeply welcomed and fully seen in all of our wholeness.

Tikkun Olam – We understand our role as partners with God in the work of repairing the brokenness of our world; we are committed to the struggle to create a more just, fair, and sustainable world.

Hineini – We show up as fully present to this moment.  We are awake to the life within and around us and stand ready to respond to the calls of our times while listening to the still, small voice within.

Curiosity – We are energized and engaged by the endless possibilities of our world and the boundless wisdom of our Torah and tradition.

G’milut Chasadim – We practice loving kindness at all times, in our relationship with ourselves, with each other, and with the natural world that sustains us all.

Joy – It is a blessing to be alive and to be a part of this sacred community, and we celebrate those blessings together.
