West End Temple’s Religious School strives to encourage a strong Jewish identity and enables children to learn about their Jewish heritage, history and traditions through the five senses, art and music. Because Jewish education is a life-long journey, we believe that the journey should be meaningful, challenging, dynamic and inspiring.

Because we believe that Jewish education is a partnership between school and home, we invite your participation as work with you in the sacred task of passing Torah to the next generation.
Adult Jewish Learning
Life-long Jewish learning is a core value of West End Temple. We offer Torah Study twice a month on Saturday mornings (check calendar for dates and times). Rabbi Slome leads a Jewish Spiritual Journeys Book Group that meets monthly as well as a Jewish movies series that meets on Thursday afternoons. We have offered Adult B’nai Mitzvah preparation and study, Shabbat guest speakers, classes in Jewish liturgy, death and dying, and Jewish values and ethics. Our hope is that our Adult Education offerings challenge us to grow intellectually and spiritually and facilitate competency and comfort with Jewish tradition. Please check our calendar for upcoming Adult Jewish Learning offerings.
