Religious School Mission Statement
To create a school environment that: is an extension of the synagogue community in that it represents the religious, cultural, and social life of the synagogue and integrates its education with the synagogue community, has dedicated staff, respects the diversity of the Jewish community, is safe, creates a sense of inclusion and community, focuses on Conservative Judaism, Israel, social action, Hebrew, and ceremonies and ritual, and fosters Jewish learning that will continue into adulthood.
Religious School Vision Statement
We believe that at Temple Adath Yeshurun Religious School that the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values of its students by the time they graduate in 7th grade will reflect the following:
An appreciation for Jewish life in that they will be engaged in Jewish life practices, concepts, and traditions that can be modern and relatable.
Temple Adath Religious School strives to educate our children to become committed Jews. This is done through a curriculum of Hebrew instruction, Torah study, holidays and rituals, and Jewish values and history. PreKindergarten through 7th graders meet on Sundays from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. PreKindergarten, Kindergarten, first, and second grade students engage in a hands-on, interactive program that teaches reading readiness, Bible stories, holiday rituals and beginning prayers.
Students in grades three through seven devote their time to Hebrew reading, learning and leading prayers, Torah/Text, Holidays, Israel, and Jewish lifecycle events. These students attend the Syracuse Community Hebrew School on Wednesdays for additional instruction in prayer and Hebrew.
