Religious School and Hebrew School at Shir Tikvah
Shir Tikvah's Lifelong Learning Vision first takes shape in our Religious School on Sunday mornings.
From 9:30am to 11:30am, around 200 students ages pre-Kindergarten to 10th grade engage in classroom learning by grade with peers, a teacher, and Madrich/a (teacher's assistant). Each grade focuses on a number of topics in their year together, like introductions to Jewish culture and Shabbat for out tots, in-depth looks at Jewish lifecycle and history for our middle ages, and deep study of Jewish ethics and morality as high schoolers.

Shir Tikvah Hebrew School meets on Wednesday evenings from either 4:30pm to 6:30pm or 6pm to 8pm. Around 100 3rd through 7th grade students spend time in classes learning to decode the Aleph-Bet (Hebrew alphabet), pronounce, understand, and practice basic vocabulary words, recite and comprehend essential prayers and rituals, and anticipate reading and chanting from the Torah for their B'nei Mitzvah (and beyond!). Our greatest focus is exposing our students to the prayers that will drive their B'nei Mitzvah experience as well as prepare them to be knowledgeable, prayerful individuals who regularly participate in self- and communal worship for the rest of their lives in whichever ways are meaningful to them.
