Youth and Family Education

Welcome to Shaaray Tefila's Religious School! 

Our school strives to inculcate a love and understanding of Judaism in each of our students. We emphasize a caring environment and programming dedicated to the enrichment of the lives of our students and their families.


 The Rabbi Harvey M. Tattelbaum School of Judaism curriculum builds a foundation of knowledge in the areas of Jewish studies, prayer, and Hebrew language.  We strongly encourage parents to enroll children in Kindergarten and look forward to students continuing through 12th Grade.  High School students may enhance their Jewish learning by participating in our active Temple youth group (TaSTY), and serving as teaching assistants in the school, as well as learning together in our Wednesday night High School program. 

 The Religious School Committee has endorsed the following priority goals for learning in The Rabbi Harvey M. Tattelbaum School of Judaism:

Learners of all ages will be on personal journeys toward lives that are… 

Guided by Jewish ethics, values, and ideals. 

Actively engaged with our congregational community and the Jewish People. 

Lived meaningfully with Jewish practice and tradition. 

In an ongoing dynamic relationship with Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael. 

 On our website you can see our class offerings by grade, read a little bit about our staff, and see our calendar for the 2017-2018 school year. 

 Please do not hesitate to call us in the Religious School at (212) 535-0912 or email [email protected] if you have any questions or special concerns. 

We look forward to getting to know you, and developing relationships with each of you during the year.
