Temple Emanuel’s Religious School serves children from preschool through high school. We strive to prepare students for participation in Jewish life at home and at Temple, while offering a place where children can make friends and develop a strong Jewish identity. Sunday School takes place from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. weekly between September and May.
The curriculum includes Jewish holidays and life-cycle rituals, history, Israel, Jewish ethics and Bible study. The children participate and learn how to conduct a Shabbat service. Learning through participation is key. We have many celebrations and activities such as a Chanukah party, Purim carnival, model Passover Seder, and more.
Hebrew School begins when a child is in the third grade and continues through b’nai mitzvah. Classes are on Sunday mornings from 11:30 to 12:30 (grades 3-8), Tuesdays from 4:30 to 6 p.m. (3rd graders), and Wednesdays 3:30 to 5 p.m. (grades 5-8). For further information please contact School Administrator Lori Dougherty at 863-899-2164 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to Religious School, Temple Emanuel offers Adult Education classes including a Decoding Hebrew Class, Keeping a Kosher Kitchen, Preparing for Passover, and more! Rabbi and Temple Members are class leaders. Most classes are open to the public and of interest to all. Please join us!
