Temple Israel’s Religious School has been nourishing the minds and souls of our youngest members for generations.

We aim to inspire a love of our shared history and tradition. Our Tyner Religious School is devoted to that goal, providing PK-12 students with a quality age-appropriate Jewish education that will guide them towards an active and meaningful Jewish life. Our dynamic faculty of Jewish educators are kind, brilliant, and dedicated to strengthening the fabric of our Judaism through lifelong learning. Learn more about:


First there was Sunday School, then Religious School.  Now there is Yom Rishon: Day One, where Jewish values come to life as students not only learn about our Jewish history and traditions, but live the values we are taught in ancient literature.

For the 2021-2022 school year, we are eager to present exciting, experiential, and innovative learning experiences for all grades:


Grades K-3

• Students meet on Sunday mornings from 9:30-11:30am for learning focused on Jewish values, holidays, and Torah stories.

• Regular family education programs encourage families to live the values we teach.

Grades 4-6

• Students meet on Sunday mornings from 9:30-11:30am for learning focused on Jewish values, holidays, Torah stories and Tikkun Olam, making the world a better place.
