TEE Religious School welcomes every individual student and their family! We are a diverse and accepting community, focusing on creating connections to each other, TEE and Reform Judaism, in an atmosphere of fun!

It is our goal that every child who attends TEE be able to decode Hebrew and put together words and sounds fluidly. Our Hebrew curriculum is based around the siddur, enabling students to read and chant prayers and understand their general meaning and origin. Research shows that the more children are exposed to a language, the easier it is for them to learn. We encourage families to enroll students in TEE Religious School at an early age to increase children’s familiarity and fluency. Our educators are here to ensure that students acquire the ritual and liturgical skills to empower them to be active participants in Reform Judaism throughout their lives. We focus on holiday rituals, T’filah, history, art, music, Jewish values and incorporating the laws of Torah into every day life.

Each grade focuses on monthly themes and values such as:
Respect / Kavod
Courage / Gevurah
Empathy / Hizdahut Eem Hazulat
Acts of loving kindness /G’milut Chasadim
Responsibility/ Achriyut
Community, celebrating diversity / K’hillah
Appreciation & Acknowledgement / Hakarat HaTov
Justice & Honor/ Tzedek V’Yosher
Holiness & Humility /K’dushah V’ Anavah
