Temple Judea has been recognized across the United States for its innovation in developing out-of-the-box religious school options to help families make Jewish learning a positive and stress-free experience for their children. Our Classroom Program is offered one day a week with options for Hebrew Studies (4th-6th grade). We offer Hebrew Studies in the Home in small groups or in private sessions, or at Temple Judea in a classroom setting. The Classroom Program instruction model includes weekly classes throughout the regular school year, Meyuchadim ("specials"), enrichment activities, retreats and membership in our junior and senior youth groups.
