Temple Israel provides education and programs for all ages, pre-school to teens!
Roots and Branches Pre-School Programs
Roots and Branches is our early childhood program for our growing community of families. We gather to celebrate Shabbat, holidays and traditions. Most of our programs this year will be outdoors, home-hosted, with families helping us create and lead them.
Roots and Branches events are open to everyone. We are grateful to the Harold Grinspoon Foundation for its generous support of this program.
We are offering modules (multiple-part classes) this year on topics of timely interest. We plan modules on Shmitta/Land Sabbatical and Earth-care, crafts and arts and Hebrew reading.
Parents are active co-creators of our elementary school programming. And more modules will be created based on interest.
The Be Mitzvah Program meets on Thursdays between 4 and 5:30. Students work with Rabbi Andrea and other community members on Hebrew literacy and prayer book skills, Torah and Torah reading, and living Jewish values.
Families enrolling their children in the Be Mitzvah program must be members of Temple Israel.
Real Teen Theater
Our Real Teen Theater program is open to Jews and allies. Teens work together to produce 2 stage productions annually, and participate in skill building workshops. This year’s skill workshop will be Preparing for Auditions.
We are grateful to the Harold Grinspoon Foundation for its generous support of this program.
