Religious School

Religious School Program

The Powell Religious School provides formal and informal educational programs for children from preschool through confirmation.  Our Religious School’s mission is to provide an education for all children of the Reform Jewish community and to develop in them a strong and positive Jewish identity.  We instill a sense of spirituality and a bond to the Jewish people and Israel through:

* Study of Torah, Hebrew, Tefillah (prayer) and history

* Practice of Mitzvot (commandments and values)

* Celebration of Shabbat, festivals and lifecycle events

* Participation in the life of the Jewish Community

Through the use of interactive projects and programs, creative strategies and techniques, holiday celebrations, fun-filled events, arts and crafts and music, we strive to nurture generations of students and families who cherish Judaism.

Our exceptional educators are enthusiastic about what they teach and are dedicated to conveying their commitment and deep love of Judaism to those they teach.  Our talented faculty is warm, caring and create a supportive, nurturing environment in which our children can share positive Jewish experiences, build strong Jewish memories and develop a strong positive Jewish identity.
