Religious School

Shalom! Welcome and welcome back to Congregation Ner Shalom’s Religious School! We are so excited to learn with you!

Ner Shalom is a proud partner from the Institute of Southern Jewish Life, and our principal, Rabbi Lizz, thinks this curriculum is wonderful for our religious school!

The Institute of Southern Jewish Life (ISJL), based in Jackson, MS. It provides programs, resources, and leadership to congregations of varying sizes and denominations throughout the South, and is dedicated to promoting, celebrating, and educating about Judaism. Rabbi Lizz attends their conferences every June and we get a visit from a specialized education fellow twice during the school year. Our fellow will also be available to help navigate questions any of us have as we continue to acclimate to our second year of this curriculum. We believe this partnership and curriculum ensures our religious school continues to be always fun and engaging, as well as provides thorough and consistent education.

One thing we love about this curriculum is that the Hebrew lessons and Judaic Studies lessons are more integrated. To get the most out of our time, it is imperative that students arrive promptly at 9:30 so that class can start on time. We have made a great investment in this curriculum and want to use it to the fullest!

Our extensive B'nai Mitzvah classes as well as our Confirmation classes for ninth and tenth graders culminate in inspiring services as well as instilling a long-term Jewish identity in our youth. Many of our graduates return to teach in our school and our confirmation class is required to serve as teaching assistants.

Combining an enriching curriculum with many special assemblies and programs, our religious school offers the entire family an incredible resource for Jewish education and identity.


Shalom and a Sweet School Year!
