Rabbi Bernard S. Raskas Religious School and Rossy & Richard Shaller Hebrew School Mission Statement:

Education Success For Youth At Temple Of Aaron
We are dedicated to providing Jewish education that will spark the love of learning and appreciation for the traditions of Judaism. It is our strong belief that Jewish Education is a lifelong process that starts at birth and continues through High School and beyond. In preparation for a lifetime of active synagogue participation our students study a variety of viewpoints and perspectives on important religious issues while always representing Conservative Judaism and its principles. The curriculum includes age appropriate instruction in Hebrew Prayer, Tanach (Hebrew Bible), other Jewish Texts, Israel, Holidays, God, and various other Judaic topics. Our curriculum presents topics at levels of increasing difficulty as a child progresses through each grade. The Lower school curriculum is also integrated with music, tefillah, and art and incorporates meaningful grade level programs to enhance the classroom curriculum. Our Upper school curriculum is enriched by special projects including field trips, speakers, and interactive programs. Please contact Cantor/Educator Joshua Fineblum today with any questions!
