United Jewish School

The United Jewish School is jointly operated by the Conservative congregation of Ahavas Israel and the Reform congregation of Temple Emanuel. The enrollment ranges from Gan Katan (2-4 year olds) through 12th grade. The school employs an administrative director, a curriculum director, and a large staff of teachers. On Sunday, class is held from 9 a.m. until 11:30 p.m. at Temple Emanuel. The supplemental Hebrew program is entirely virtual. The students meet with their teacher at a set time during the week in small groups.

The United Jewish School establishes an school environment for children and families, utilizing the latest teaching methodologies and curriculum which responds to the needs of a diverse student population and strengthens the students’ awareness of Israel and Jewish issues. It is a warm and caring place where children want to attend.
