Our Religious School provides our students with a nurturing and enjoyable school environment which fosters an enthusiasm and love for Judaism and a commitment to life-long Jewish living and learning. We are dedicated to educating our youth to be knowledgeable, responsible, and participatory Jews.

Our goal is for all of our students to feel comfortable walking into any synagogue or Jewish environment having gained at MJC, a strong Jewish identity, Judaic literacy, knowledge of Tefillah and most importantly, a love of Judaism.  We work to help our students to understand and appreciate the importance of assuming meaningful roles in the Jewish community and to apply Jewish ethics, values and traditions to everyday life.

Our curriculum is geared toward fluency in Hebrew reading as well as comfort and familiarity with the Siddur (prayerbook), synagogue rituals, and a basic understanding of our prayers. Our students gain a strong Jewish identity as they develop an understanding and appreciation for the holidays, Shabbat, Israel, history, and Jewish values. Students learn in a warm and embracing environment through a newly enhanced hands-on learning program, classroom work, experiential and individualized learning, family workshops, a monthly Shabbat school, more! We strive to create an environment that is inspiring and prepares our children with the essential values, ideals and traditions for practicing Judaism in our ever-changing world.
