Temple Israel Religious School (TIRS) is a warm, inviting place where children are encouraged to explore their Jewish traditions and heritage. We take pride in working with families to strengthen each child’s Jewish identity and connection to the greater Jewish community. We hold Jewish learning, worship, and community as central values. Our desire is that students will continue on a path of lifelong learning.

Our fresh, engaging grade-level curricula is supplemented throughout the year with family and holiday programs, music, mitzvah projects, social action and Shabbat retreats. We have a strong and dedicated staff of educators, who delight in mixing formal and informal Jewish educational techniques to bring thousands of years of history and traditions alive.
