Mitzner Family Religious School

 

The mission of The Mitzner Family Religious School (MFRS) is to foster the development and ongoing

growth of Jewish identity for everyone associated with our programs:  children, parents and teachers.  The cornerstones of this program are faith in God, love of Torah, and identification with the Jewish people and

Israel through involvement in the synagogue and Jewish life.  

The goals of Reform Jewish education for Temple Kehillat Chaim's Mitzner Family Religious School are to educate students to:

 

  • Affirm their Jewish identity and unite themselves to the Jewish people by their words and deeds.

  • Affirm the covenant between God and the Jewish peoples (the brit) by mitzvot (commandments).

  • Affirm their bond to Eretz Yisrael, the land of Israel.

  • Cherish and study Hebrew, the language of the Jewish people.

  • Value and practice prayer (t’filah).

  • Further the causes of justice, freedom, and peace by pursuing lives of righteousness (tzedek), justice (mishpat), and loving deeds (chesed).

  • Celebrate Shabbat, the festivals, and observe the Jewish ceremonies that mark significant occasions in their lives.

  • Value and respect themselves, others, their family, and their community.

  • Express their kinship with the Jewish people (K'lal Yisrael) by actively seeking to improve the welfare of Jews throughout the world.

  • Support and participate in the life of the synagogue.

 

Our Religious School is a Sunday - only Judaics and Hebrew program that meets during the school year (August - May). PreK meets 12 times a year and Kindergarten through 2nd grade meets 24 times a year, from 10:50 am - 12:30 pm.
