Helfman Religious School

Helfman Religious School offers an innovative, experiential and compelling religious educational program for children to learn about Judaism and develop their own sense of Jewish identity.

Our objectives are based on the goals of the Reform Movement and enable students to draw connections between Jewish thought and traditions and their own lives. By identifying central themes and ethical messages within the Torah and integrating those into their everyday, students gain the ability to make choices based on Jewish ethics and values.
