Religious School

Children from Pre-K through high school participate in our religious school.  We have a creative, hands-on curriculum that teaches children ritual and prayer, Bible studies and Jewish ethics, holidays and life cycle.  Throughout the year, students learn the important role of the historic and modern state of Israel. Older students engage in Holocaust studies, as well. 

One Sunday each month, students select from teacher-led Chugim.  Students in 3rd through 6th grades also attend on Wednesday evenings, and essential part of helping them prepare for their bar or bat mitzvah. 

Upper division students participate in a seminar taught by Rabbi Hearshen, Cantor Kornworcel and Education Director Judy Van Der Stelt.  Experiential Judaism through off-site programs and trips give students a chance to strengthen their Jewish identity.  In 2018, Congregation Rodeph Sholom was awarded a grant through the Legacy Heritage Foundation to engage in a Seniors with Seniors program. Once a month, High school seniors spent time with residents at the Allegro Senior Living facility. Through their theme of "animals" they shared experiences like planting a butterfly garden for all residents to enjoy, learning about the Southeastern Guide Dog program, and more.  

Tenth Graders participate in our Confirmation program, a year-long course of study with Rabbi Hearshen that culminates in a weekend trip to experience "Jewish" New York and the Confirmation celebration in May.
