miriam (2).JPG We invite prospective parents to get to know our Sunday morning program! Join us at 9:30 for z’man rishon, where our religious school community comes together for a weekly assembly that explores the themes of a shacharit (morning) service, other holidays or community events. When the students go to class, there will be time to meet with the school director and hear about the outline of the program. After that, a parent volunteer will take you on a tour of the school so you can see the learning in action. More » about Religious School Open House
