Overarching Curriculum Goals

At Temple Israel Religious School, we strive to foster a sense of joy and appreciation in our children and their families, as teachers help each student develop: 

  • A strong sense of belonging to Kehilla (community);
  • An ongoing relationship with HaMakom (literally meaning "this place," HaMakom also is used in Hebrew as a name for God), and tefilah (prayer); 
  • A love for Talmud Torah (lifelong Jewish learning), Tikkun Olam (continually helping to improve our world); and 
  • A connection to Am Yisrael (both the modern state of Israel, and the entire community of Israel) and Hatikvah (literally translated as "the hope," Hatikvah, which is the national anthem of Israel expresses the eternal hope that has sustained the Jewish people for centuries).
