Welcome to the Rabbi Albert I. Gordon Religious School!
The Rabbi Albert I. Gordon Religious School includes both our Gan (K) through Hay (5th grade) program and Chai385, our middle school program (6th-8th grade) and provides our students with a meaningful and substantive 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); Tefilah (prayer); Chagim (Jewish holidays); TaNaCH (Torah, History and Mitzvot); and Yisrael (Israel). Our stellar faculty is enhanced by learning specialists, music and Israeli dance specialists and teen and college-age madrichim (classroom assistants), all of whom are models of derech eretz (professional and ethical standards) and are deeply committed to providing educational excellence in an environment which highlights the joy and ru’ach (spirit) of Jewish life.
Chai385 6th – 8th Grade Program
When our children reach 6th grade, they begin Chai385, and embark upon their serious B’nei Mitzvah preparation. Our students experience the benefit of being taught by our Clergy and Youth Team as well as the opportunity to choose electives taught by specialists in their fields. The children form personal relationships with our clergy and expand their Jewish educational experiences through a broad range of course offerings. Our goal is to engage and inspire our middle school students while strengthening their connections to their Temple Emanuel peers and the greater synagogue and Jewish community.
