Our small community with a big heart comes to life in our religious school, where we provide a comprehensive education that is creative, fun, and adaptable to your child’s needs. Our goal is to create and nurture “Jewish souls.” We hope to nourish our children’s Jewish identities and encourage them to find ways to make Jewish rituals and values part of their lives in the synagogue, at home and in the community.
Students are encouraged to ask questions as they discover their own path and passions to living a Jewish life. Through our engaging curriculum, students embark on a journey that prepares them for a unique and meaningful Bar or Bat Mitzvah experience, and continues through Confirmation and beyond. Our children dive into holidays; Jewish history, culture and traditions; rituals and prayers; Torah; Hebrew; ethics and philosophy; current events; and an appreciation of the land of Israel, past and present.
Sinai Free Religious School is known for its personalized attention to each student’s talents, needs, and level of Jewish knowledge. Cantor/Educator Amy Goldstein and Rabbi Morris Barzilai place a strong emphasis on Relational Judaism, building personal connections with each of our Religious School families. We do this by creating joyful Jewish moments in our classrooms and in our sanctuary. Students bring these experiences home, and have the opportunity to live their Jewish values within our community.
Sinai Free Synagogue’s Religious School serves the surrounding communities of lower Westchester including Pelham, New Rochelle, Bronxville, Tuckahoe, Crestwood, Eastchester, and Yonkers, as well as the Bronx.
