TEMPLE SHIR TIKVA

Religious School at TST

During the 2018-2019 school year, we engaged in a robust community engagement process to help implement an array of new efforts into the learning curriculum. We strengthened our focus on building community and connections by implementing Responsive Classroom techniques in every classroom; we hired a fabulous STEM expert who infuses Judaism into science and technology projects that keep students highly engaged; we have revised our Hebrew language education with smaller group instruction and more direct connections to tefilah (prayer) and the B. Mitzvah journey process; and we have prioritized teacher learning and professional development in new ways as we know that supporting our educators is the best way to strengthen their work in the classrooms.

We are excited about the positive impact these innovations are having on our educational program.  

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.

Hineni
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.
