Synagogue School 2022-2023

Our students will be engaged in relevant and meaningful learning with our team of educators. The faculty at RSNS is dedicated to creating Jewish learning which stimulates, challenges and engages every learner, encouraging them to truly understand and embrace what it means to live as a Jew in the modern world. The faculty meets regularly for ongoing professional development and skill-building. We have an integrated approach to curriculum with a strong emphasis on building relationships. We believe that relationships emerge between learners, families, children and congregants by learning together in age groupings and by weaving a network that creates a caring community within our school, which reflects our congregation.

We join in song and prayer with our youngest students, welcoming them into the Synagogue School community. Through a holiday-based curriculum, Hebrew as a living language, and family involvement, we integrate our youngest learners into the larger RSNS community. Each family participates in the class by bringing a special ritual object from home for “show and tell.” Start date 9/13 (Tuesday)

Families must choose one of the following options:

Option 1: All In-Person Learning Tuesday and Thursday
Tuesdays, 4:15 - 6:15 pm, All students attend IN PERSON
Thursdays, 4:15-5:30 pm, All students attend IN PERSON
This option has a focus on building relationships between the learners, their teachers and the community

Option 2: In-Person Tuesday and Remote Thursday Learning
Tuesdays, 4:15 - 6:15 pm, All students attend IN PERSON
Thursdays, 5:30-6:15 pm, All students attend REMOTELY
This option addresses the need for flexibility in families’ schedules but because of its abbreviated time may not align with all aspects of in-person learning.

 

We will be supplementing the weekday learning with the following experiences to encourage family participation:
 

KINDERGARTEN - SIXTH GRADE/K-VAV 
Each grade will participate in one Friday Night Family Service and one to two Saturday morning B’Yahad programs a year. 
Friday Night Family Services: Once a month at 7:30pm 
B’Yahad: One Saturday a month, from 9-11am 
At B’Yahad, parents learn with Rabbi Jodie, Cantor Eric, or Morah Rebecca about how the weekly Torah portion can apply to our lives today, while the kids engage in fun, interactive learning with one of our skilled synagogue school teachers. At 10:15am we come together for a brief Shabbat morning service which ends at 11am. 

 

KADIMA with Rabbi Jodie and Cantor Eric
Tuesdays, 6:30-8:00PM
Members ONLY: $995

Our 7th graders meet with one another weekly for a class directed to developing a Jewish identity.  Students are joined by their parents once a month.  Beginning with a day-long family retreat (9/10), we form both a spiritual and a learning community where B'nei Mitzvah students and their parents encounter Judaism through the eyes of the adults and children who helped shape our heritage.
