Religious School

Our Religious School empowers Jewish children and teens to develop friendships and leadership skills, fosters a sense of belonging to the Jewish People, a deep engagement with and love for Israel, and a commitment to inspired Jewish living.

Walk the halls of Temple Shalom Religious School on any given Sunday morning when school is in session and you will hear song and prayer, laughter and joy.

We believe that every stage of Jewish learning must be meaningful, personally fulfilling and foster a love of our traditions and community.

Our students, teachers and parents work together to generate bonds with each other, our Temple family, Israel and God based on our shared faith, culture and heritage, while developing a strong foundation in Jewish values, beliefs and practices in ways that are engaging, intellectually stimulating and fun.

We believe that successful Jewish learning is maximized when it is in sync with the realities of modern secular life.  In response to the fact that many families are pulled in too many directions during the week, Temple Shalom offers a Sunday-only Hebrew class as well as a Sunday/Wednesday option.





No student is ever denied a religious education for financial reasons. Please contact Deborah Fidel, Executive Director, at 239-455-3030.

Please note:

Our Religious School is open to members of Temple Shalom. If you are not a member yet, we invite you to join our family. Call our Temple office at 239-455-3030 for membership information.


Madrachim Program

Temple Shalom’s Madrichim Program welcomes 8th-12thGraders into our religious school to be outstanding Jewish role models.  Our madrichim take on that responsibility by bringing in their own passions and knowledge, ensuring a healthy and positive learning and playing environment, and assisting in the overall process of the religious school day.  Our madrichim learn vital skills to be Jewish educators.
