Religious School Home
The Rabbi Albert I. Gordon Religious School includes both our Gan (K) through Hay (5th grade) program and Makor, our middle school program in partnership with Prozdor, and provides our students with a meaningful and rigorous academic program enriched by exposure to all aspects of Jewish life and culture.
Gan (K) through Kitah Hay (5th)
The vibrant Religious School experience is anchored by a curriculum that focuses on critical areas of Jewish learning: Ivrit (Hebrew language); Tefilot (prayer); Chagim (Jewish holidays); Torah and History; Israel; and Mitzvot. Our stellar faculty, supplemented by a learning specialist, a music teacher, an Israeli dance instructor and numerous Madrichim (classroom assistants) and tutors, are models of Derech Eretz (professional and ethical standards) and are deeply committed to providing educational excellence for our young students.

Makor 6th & 7th Grade Program in Partnership with Prozdor/Hebrew College
When our children reach 6th grade, they enter Makor and begin their serious B'nei Mitzvah preparation. Our Makor students have both the benefit of being taught by our Rabbis, Cantor, Ritual Director and Director of Informal Education as well as the opportunity to choose electives taught by top-notch faculty affiliated with Prozdor. This partnership enables our children to form personal relationships with our clergy and to broaden their Jewish educational experiences by selecting from a range of new course offerings. Viewed as an innovative model for educating middle schoolers, Makor is attracting more synagogues who have partnered with Prozdor in order to engage our students and inspire their interest in Jewish learning.
