Welcome from Our Religious School Director

A new school year at Temple Emeth is always an exciting and challenging journey. The holiday season of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot affords us a unique opportunity to renew, reassess and to create new goals and dreams for ourselves an our school community.

Our students learn and experience Torah through stories, text analysis, Midrash, drama, dance, and song. Our goal is to help our students discover and strengthen the personal ties that connect each of them to Torah. The students in K-7 will encounter the beauty, wisdom and depth of Torah by learning a passage, doing a mitzvah, and chanting a word or even a single letter. Our Torah guides and teaches us how to live an ethical life, a life filled with mitzvot, and love and respect for all creation. 

We are excited and proud of our new Hebrew program — L'chaim: Hebrew for Life — that will enable our students to read Hebrew and lead services with confidence. Our L'chaim: Hebrew for Life program will utlize Hebrew to learn and understand core concepts of Torah, prayer, and Jewish traditions. 

On behalf of our faculty and staff and from my family to yours, I wish you “a world that is new every morning and to feel reborn and renewed each day.”

B'vracha,
Dora Geld Friedman
Director, Temple Emeth Religious School
