Religious School

Here at Bolton Street Synagogue, we strive to create a sense of community and provide a strong foundation for Jewish living and learning. Through innovation, creativity, collaboration, and passion for Jewish education, we continue to build lasting relationships and connections within the school and throughout the Bolton Street Synagogue community.

Our Sunday morning religious school program offers students and their families an incredible opportunity to develop a connection and love for Judaism through the lessons and programs organized and executed by our excellent faculty and staff. From kindergarten through 9th Grade, the students are provided with lessons, activities, and special events through which they can form an appreciation for Judaism in a way that is meaningful to them. We acknowledge the importance of both formal and informal Jewish education and seek to incorporate elements of both into our school curriculum. Jewish values, holiday experiences, and Hebrew prayer are the central themes of our program, providing students with the knowledge and skills to lead a meaningful and enriching Jewish life.

Our focus on individuals is what makes Bolton Street Synagogue Religious School so very special. Our intimate size gives us the unique opportunity to foster meaningful relationships between students and between families, thus strengthening the sense of community.
