Religious School

STaRS logo

Shomrei Torah Religious School (STARS) welcomes children in grades K-7 into our nurturing, joyful and hands-on Jewish education program.

Our primary educational goals are to open a door to learning for every student and to foster a love of Jewish tradition and community.  Our goal is that every child will be a lifelong participant in Jewish communal life.

To make Jewish education fully accessible to your family, we offer compelling programming, online materials for Hebrew study at home, family education opportunities, field trips, and an open-door policy for parents and guardians to volunteer.  We expect our students to support and participate in the life of our synagogue, their Jewish community and the community at large.
