The Max Frankel Religious School


Mission Statement

The Max Frankel Religious School of Temple  Emanuel strives to provide students with an understanding of Reform Judaism and pride in being Jewish. We believe that Judaism is meant to be lived and learned. Our Religious School will impart in students the knowledge and values they will need to make critical decisions about how they will live their lives as Jews. We challenge students to develop those habits of intellect and imagination that will prepare them for life, leadership and a desire for lifelong learning.

Guiding Principles

Equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary to place themselves along the continuum of Jewish life to show them how Judaism can enrich their lives, ultimately resulting in them committing to Judaism for themselves.
Connect students to a kehillah kedoshah (holy community), which, deeply rooted in Jewish values, will illustrate to them how Temple Emanuel and the larger Jewish community can be an anchor in their lives.
Demonstrate to students how their Judaism can play a role in how they navigate the world and interact with those around them.
