Junior Congregation is this Sat, Jan 25 at 10:30am.

Looking forward to seeing you at TIRS this Sunday, 1/26!

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.















Kitah Vav (6th) & Kitah Zayin (7th) students & families will participate in the 20th Annual World Wide Wrap on Sunday, February 2.

Please plan to arrive for the World Wide Wrap with your Kitah Vav & Kitzah Zayin student(s) by 8:45am at Temple Israel.

We will wrap tefillin together with hundreds of communities around the world. 

Looking forward to seeing all of our Kitah Vav & Kitah Zayin families at the World Wide Wrap!
