We offer developmentally appropriate Jewish religious and Hebrew language instruction
in a nurturing environment to any child in the Greater Glens Falls area. Our school
seeks to instill a love of Judaism and Jewish values and to provide students with
the skills that will allow them to be comfortable with Jewish practice throughout
their lives. Currently instruction for children is held on Sunday mornings from 9:30
to 11 AM. including crafts, holidays, Bible stories and individualized Hebrew instruction.
Our Bible discussion focuses on moral lessons to be learned from the stories. Please
see our children's program page.
Our adult education programs are designed to respond to members' needs and interests.
Currently we have Hebrew Literature or Judaic studies after Kiddish luncheon on Shabbat.
Our weekly parsha discussion at Saturday morning services is also highly thought
provoking. Intermediate Hebrew language is taught on Wednesday evenings at 7 PM.
Beginning Hebrew will either be taught on an individualized basis or in a small class
depending on interest level. Additional lectures and discussion on specific topics
take place throughout the year. Please watch our bulletin for details.
We provide individual Bar and Bat Mitzvah training for people of all ages. We also
place a high priority on supporting our potential converts through the conversion
process. Contact our office and we will design a program that meets your needs.
We have a resident Klezmer band, a Jewish cooking club, an excellent Jewish library
and show movies periodically with Jewish or Israeli themes.
