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.

NEW! Pre-Kindergarten Program
Limmud is our new program for children entering kindergarten. It is a four-week program that allows students to get a taste of religious school. They will join the school for Tefillah, our morning prayers and songs, followed by fun, hands-on learning with Morah Rosie Weber. In the classroom they will learn about tzedakah, Passover, community, and much more-with time for art projects, snacks, and music.
