TYNER RELIGIOUS SCHOOL

To live fully as a Jew requires knowledge of our history, tradition and observance. Just as important is a secure emotional bond to our religion, our people, our heritage. The educational programs at Temple Israel integrate experience and knowledge, nourishing both heart and mind.

Education is Temple Israel’s foremost commitment and is demonstrated by providing a quality Jewish education to more than 1300 Jewish youth. The dynamic faculty of over 90 committed Jewish educators is chosen for its ability to inspire students with a love of Judaism, while imparting skills necessary to become active and knowledgeable Jews.
