Shalom! Welcome to University Synagogue Religious School! Here at University you will find a warm school community that cares about the learning of each individual student. Our school believes in a Jewish education that involves six content areas to promote building a strong Jewish identity, developing a school community, and holding an open, creative classroom. Our content areas in grades K-7 are:

Chagim: Shabbat & Holidays
Am Yisrael: Jewish Identity
K’lal Yisrael: Community & History
Eretz Yisrael: Land of Israel
Talmud Torah: Jewish Literature
Ivrit V-T’Filah: Hebrew & Prayer
These subject areas provide the roots of your child's education and Jewish identity. When we tend to these roots - nurturing them and allowing them to grow and develop, your child can have a strong Jewish identity, rooted in a deep understanding of what Judaism is all about. These content areas are highly developed and introduced as early as Kindergarten: material is age-appropriate and allows for a "spiral" of learning where concepts are developed on a deeper level year after year.
In addition to these subjects, students in grades K-7 hold weekly t'filah (services) and enjoy the talents of our specialists in the fields of Rikud (Israeli dance) and Shira (music). Students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of field trips, from visits to the Zimmer Museum to hands-on social action projects.
