K-10 Education & Engagement

Formal Jewish Education

Louis & Mary Millstone Religious School
Rabbi Jerome W. Grollman Hebrew School

The formal youth education program at United Hebrew Congregation encompasses religious and Hebrew education. Our curriculum, combined with the care and expertise of wonderful faculty members, strives to give each child a solid foundation of Jewish knowledge within a Reform Jewish perspective, the opportunity to develop their personal beliefs and connections to their faith, and the understanding that Jewish teachings and values can apply to every aspect of their daily life. Through stimulating academic lessons, hands-on experiences, and community-building activities, we offer an educational program that will lead our students into a lifetime of Jewish learning and living.

The 2019-2020 school year has brought many changes to United Hebrew Schools. If you were unable to attend our parent information sessions, you can view the slideshow with all of the relevant information here.
