Port Jewish Center

PJC Religious School

Our Vision

Port Jewish Center Religious School strives to provide our children with a high quality and engaging Reform Jewish education that fosters a love of Judaism and a sense of responsibility to community and starts them on their journey of life-long Jewish learning.

Our Mission

  • Teach the fundamentals of Torah, holidays, Hebrew and heritage needed to be an active member of the Jewish community using the full spectrum of teaching methods including experiential learning.
  • Foster in our students a meaningful, life-long relationship with God.
  • Instill in each student the value of service to others.
  • Include families in their child’s Jewish learning.
  • Build a sense of belonging and love of the Jewish community; in our school, in our synagogue, in Israel and around the world.

At Port Jewish Center Religious School we take our Vision and Mission seriously.  Our curriculum aligns with it as do our events and programs.  In our school you will not see a teacher behind a desk or a student reading a textbook.  Instead, when you enter our school you will see students preparing skits, researching projects, praying or cooking. You will hear singing, laughter and the hum of students engaging with their teachers, fellow students and Jewish learning.  While we are constantly striving to use the latest educational techniques, we consciously stress community over technology.  Our program is deliberately designed to build loving and caring relationships between teachers and students.  Our graduates go on to our Hebrew High School and also work at the Religious School as student aides, providing role models and mentoring to our younger students.  Our families are enthusiastic partners in their children’s learning through our innovative LOMED program.

Schedule

  • Grades K-7 will meet on Mondays from 4:15-6:15 pm
