Seaside Jewish Community Religious School
The Seaside Jewish Community Religious School was established in 2004 in response to the growing needs of the Jewish community in Sussex County. We are dedicated to providing students with a warm, creative environment and a strong educational foundation. In doing so, we strive to create in our children a positive Jewish identity with the skills and ethics necessary to become responsible, knowledgeable and motivated members of the Jewish community.
Curriculum: Our students learn abut all facets of Judaism- from the Alef Class beginning to learn the Hebrew alefbet, Jewish values, history, Bible study and holidays to events of the Jewish life cycle, community, and preparing for B’nai Mitzvot. The difficult issues of peer pressure, ethics and morality are addressed in the Confirmation class after Bar or Bat Mitzvah has been completed. There is always excitement in our children to learn new things about their Jewish heritage.
Since our school began in 2004, we have seen the many rewards of the dedication of our students and teachers. Our students have participated in services on many occasions. They have lead prayers, sang songs and read from the Torah. There have been many beautiful B'nai Mitzvot. We look forward to celebrating many more simchas with our students in the future.
It is our hope that our students will arrive at a personal belief in G-d, coupled with a keen sense of Jewish consciousness, commitment and responsibility. If you are interested in being a part of this wonderful learning experience, please contact Allison Colker, Religious School director at 302-227-1107 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
