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.  

 

Our formal Hebrew training begins in 3rd grade. 3rd through 7th Grade students are in school from 9:00 - 12:30 pm. 

 

Registration will soon open for the 2024-25 School Year!

Registration fee: $50.00 per student (not to exceed $100.00 per family) paid upon registration

Our School Events

Our Annual Picnic kicks off the school year! This year's picnic theme was Super Fun to kick off the school year's theme of being superheroes who use our unique superpowers to make the world a better place! We had a dunk tank, a DJ, and great food for all! 

Our Sukkot picnic is a great way for the entire school to experience our Sukkah. Each class creates decorations for the sukkah and then we do an all-school service, led by the 7th graders. 

Chanukkah kicks off with our Chanukkah-Palooza which serves as the MFRS fundraiser for the year! We celebrated all 8 nights of Chanukkah this year at TKC and loved lighting our brand new 8-foot tall menorah! 

Tu B'shevat this year honored our Georgia forest animals who have superpowers too! We learned about animals from the floor to the canopy who have special superpowers like speed, vision, and invincibility! Our ISJL partners created an awesome Seder and mural program that engaged all students from Kindergarten through 7th grade in creating a work of art for our building. 

Throughout the year, we have families come in for Family Education Days. The kids love showing their parents what they are learning in Religious School! Our 7th grade families participate in Mitzvah Days where they do a Mitzvah project together with the entire class that is planned by members of the class.
