Achduth Vesholom's Religious School offers comprehensive educational programming for children of Temple members in preschool through 12th grade. (Children who turn 4 by September 1 are eligible to enroll.)
Our objectives include teaching our students Jewish values, traditions, history, heritage, and way of life. We want to create a meaningful Jewish experience for our children so that Judaism becomes a positive intellectual and emotional experience. We also want to strengthen and reinforce Jewish feelings, associations and fellowship.
We utilize the Judaic and Hebrew curricula of the Shalom Learning Program
which uses technology and the latest educational practices in order to cultivate a lifelong love of Jewish learning among Jews of all affiliations and backgrounds. This program is flexible in that it can be used in the virtual learning setting as well as in person instruction.
Basic Hebrew is part of the comprehensive religious school program. The Shalom Learning Hebrew program will develop decoding skills in our youth and will provide an overview of the prayer service.” Additional Hebrew classes are required for bar/bat mitzvah candidates. Confirmation marks an educational milestone for young people in the 10th grade. Post-Confirmation classes are offered to students in grades 11 and 12.
Our Havurat No’ar students are the post-B’nai Mitzvah students. They will explore topics relevant to their lives as Jewish teens and young adults. Field trips and Confirmation class trips broaden our students' view of the Jewish world.
Our 172-year tradition of meaningful Jewish education in Fort Wayne has been fostered by the hard work and dedication of teachers, rabbis and educators. We're also fortunate to have the Rabbi Richard B. Safran Library
as a resource. The Temple also encourages our young people's involvement with the Temple's Junior Youth Group and FOrTY
, as well as Jewish summer camps
