 Our Interim Religious Education Director Melanie Berman is implementing our Enhanced Hebrew Learning program, designed to provide flexible and personalized options for students in grades 3-6. We are designing new Sunday morning for different age groups for prayer and celebration. We are strengthening our commitment to family education,  offering new opportunities for multi-generational engagement. we have an exceptional team of veteran educators who build lasting personal relationships with their students.

Our vision is to expand the mind and open the soul, endowing each child with a passion for lifelong learning, and a fundamental appreciation of what it means to be a Jew in today’s world.  Our students have the opportunity to study Torah, Israel, Mitzvot, Jewish history, culture and values, and build strong Hebrew reading skills.  The Adat Reyim Religious School is committed to its students and families, as we develop a lifelong love of Jewish learning not only for young students but also for Jewish adolescents and  adults, actively engaged in their Jewish communities.   

 We are particularly excited about welcoming our new Youth Director, Danielle Gaita, who is developing wonderful programs for our teens in 8th -12th grades that will strengthen friendships and enhance Jewish identity.

Ruach Playlist on Spotify

Our Ruach Spotify Playlist includes the songs sang together during the 2021-2022 school year.  The playlist will continue to be updated as we share new music with the students this year. Our Ruach Specialists also created a Ruach High Holiday Playlist. If you do not already have an account with Spotify, you can download the app for free and begin listening.  The free version is not nearly as flexible and exciting as the for-a-fee version, but it is a place to start and is worth a try.
