Religious School Handbook

Welcome to WJC Religious School! Our faculty strives to nurture each child in the context of the family and the community. Our goal is to provide the best quality Jewish education for all children in a stimulating and nurturing environment. We strive to build an atmosphere for every child that creates a desire to learn and understand. We are guided in this task by the principles of Judaism.

WHAT ARE THESE PRINCIPLES?

TIKUN OLAM: MENDING THE WORLD

TZEDEK TZEDEK TIRDOFF: SEEK THE SAME JUSTICE FOR OTHERS AS YOU DEMAND FOR YOURSELF

TORAH L’SHMA: THE STUDY OF TORAH FOR ITS OWN SAKE

KOL YISRAEL AREVIM ZEH LA’ZEH: WE ARE EACH RESPONSIBLE FOR ONE ANOTHER

To succeed in our endeavor we need your help. I would like to encourage you to be as active and supportive as possible in your children’s Jewish education. The more involved you become both at home and here at the Westchester Jewish Center the more meaningful you and your children’s experience here can be. Here are just a few ways in which you can get more involved at the Religious School:

  •   Join and support our Parent’s Association
  •   Participate in our Parent Group and join us for meetings.
  •   Encourage your child to attend our weekly Youth Shabbat Services.
  •   Attend our Sunday family education programs
  •   Encourage your children to participate in Youth activities

I look forward to working closely with you and your family. Please feel free to speak with me throughout the school year with any thoughts, suggestions or concerns you may have.

A successful year for everyone!

B’Shalom,
