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.

Each grade learns and experiences 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. Our teachers and 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. Our special focus on Torah will give all of our students and families the opportunity to get closer to God and to each other.

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.”
