Our Religious School Curriculum

At Temple Shalom of the South Bay, we want your child's Religious School experience to be both enjoyable and enriching. Our school curriculum focuses on family involvement, interactive programming, all-school Holiday activities, and hands-on learning. Our once-a-week Religious School provides your child with the tools she needs to become a well-rounded Jewish young adult in the 21st century.

Our goal is simple: We want our students to acquire an appreciation for and pride in their Jewish heritage, creating a connection that will carry over into their adult lives. We hope to engage their sense of identity by capturing their imaginations. 

Our classes are participatory, intriguing, and stimulating for our students, and we maintain a relaxed and positive atmosphere. Through multi-sensory and hands-on lessons, students truly experience their tradition. Interactive discussions and projects create a lively classroom experience in which each child has a platform to share her or his opinions and ask questions.

At TSSB, we help students to:

  • Develop a love of Judaism and pride in Jewish heritage
  • Contribute to the community (both within the Temple and through social action)
  • Achieve Hebrew and prayer literacy
  • Extend their knowledge of Jewish history
  • Gain familiarity with Jewish holidays and traditions
  • Foster an appreciation of and connection to klal Yisrael (all Jews) and the State of Israel

We are also immensely proud of our B'nai mitzvah program, in which students learn to read from the Torah, lead in prayer, and become participating members of our Jewish community.

Religious School is open to children ages 5-15.
