JRC Religious School: Our Vision

Each child will emerge from the Judea Reform Congregation Religious School and youth/teen programs as an engaged, knowledgeable, and committed Reform Jew.

  • Jewish values and Jewish teachings help our students make important life decisions
  • Social Justice is woven into the fabric of their lives
  • Judea Reform Congregation—comprised of peers, teachers, and community members—form the foundation of our students’ Jewish community
  • Our students feel a sense of belonging to the Jewish people around the world
  • Our students celebrate the diversity of Jewish spiritual, cultural, and social expression

Our Mission:

Judea Reform Congregation’s Religious School is committed to providing a sacred, safe, and inclusive learning environment. Students explore and develop their relationship with Reform Jewish values, ideals, actions, and ethics according to their individual abilities.

We offer engaging, exciting, and enjoyable activities for our students and teachers to learn from one another. We cultivate life-long relationships within our classrooms. We facilitate meaningful connections between our youngest and oldest members of our community. We weave social justice into everything.

Our Principles:

We teach our students to celebrate religious and social diversity.

Our students learn to have a positive impact on the world.

Our students learn alongside their parents and participate in congregational activities.

We facilitate inter-generational learning opportunities.

We encourage our teachers to also learn from our students.
