Our Vision of Jew­ish Edu­ca­tion at Con­gre­ga­tion Aha­vath Sholom

At the dynamic CAS reli­gious school, we strive to offer expe­ri­en­tial, nur­tur­ing, hands-on, excit­ing, rich, and vibrant Jew­ish learn­ing that will inspire our stu­dents for a life­time. Our fac­ulty of ener­getic and pas­sion­ate edu­ca­tors is com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing our stu­dents with a world-class Jew­ish edu­ca­tion by means of a cutting-edge cur­ricu­lum that cre­atively and rig­or­ously equips our stu­dents for mean­ing­ful Jew­ish journeys.

Stu­dents grad­u­at­ing from our CAS Reli­gious School will be equipped with many tools that will serve them as Jew­ish adults. A num­ber of goals/objectives for our excit­ing reli­gious school pro­gram are:

  • to cre­ate a warm, invit­ing, and inclu­sive Kehillah Kedoshah (sacred com­mu­nity) within the larger con­text of CAS that wel­comes in every Jew from diverse walks of life
  • to edu­cate our chil­dren in the cus­toms, prac­tices, and rit­u­als of Judaism in order to enable them to make it rel­e­vant in their daily lives, and instill­ing within them and their fam­i­lies a life­long com­mit­ment to Jew­ish learning
  • to pos­i­tively nour­ish the grow­ing Jew­ish iden­ti­ties of our children
  • to encour­age stu­dents to per­form Mitzvot (commandments/good deeds) and G’milut Hasadim (acts of lov­ing kind­ness) and inte­grate them into their daily lives
  • to cel­e­brate Shab­bat, Jew­ish hol­i­days and learn the his­tory and roots of the Jew­ish people
  • to become acquainted and com­fort­able with Jew­ish life cycle events
  • to learn the Hebrew alpha­bet and read, com­pre­hend, and write in Hebrew as well as gain the abil­ity to nav­i­gate and mas­ter the Jew­ish prayer book
