We want our children to experience Judaism with joy.

That's the goal of the Shir Tikvah religious school, and we take a holistic approach towards achieving it—a combination of spirited classroom learning, meaningful hands-on activities, home-based traditions, and participation in the work of the community through an innovative program called the Learning Corps

Learning Corps

The Shir Tikvah Learning Corps, developed with a grant from the Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) of Boston, is an innovative activity-based program designed to give children the experience of turning Jewish values into action, mirroring the work of the Temple. The grades are linked to five committees and their focus—welcoming and belonging (Membership Committee), introduction to the cultural history of Jews and the love of Torah, books and participation in lifelong learning (Library Committee), taking care of each other (Caring Committee), learning about our connection to the land, state and people of Israel (Israel Committee), and becoming socially and environmentally responsible (Tikkun Olam Committee). Parents and committee representatives plan the activities together, tailoring them to the development level of each grade. It's a three-way relationship: Parents learn about temple work, committees connect with the religious school, and children benefit by experiencing what it's like to contribute to the community.
