The Adat Shalom Torah School is committed to instilling a love of Judaism and Jewish learning in our children. The Torah School staff work to convey a sense of joy and celebration of Judaism, rigor in learning, and openness to questioning. The learning process focuses on developing an appreciation of Jewish history, customs, beliefs, language, ritual, and other teachings within a Reconstructionist context.
Each class minyan is a building block advancing familiarity and comfort with the structure of Shabbat services and the prayers. Each minyan deepens the prayer experience and continues to develop understanding of the service. The goal is for students to participate in any congregation service with comfort and ease.
