Congregation Shearith Israel prides itself on being a leader in the community.
When you donate $1,000+ you can designate where the funds are directed, to accommodate the area that is most meaningful to you: Religious School, Family Center, Adult Education, the Kesher Program or Ritual Programs:
Weitzman Family Religious School
The primary goal of the Weitzman Family Religious School Program is to enable our children to develop an understanding and appreciation of themselves as Jews and of the heritage and culture that accompanies that knowledge. Through formal and informal education opportunities, we strive to stimulate and reinforce a positive lasting relationship between the student, the family, the synagogue, the Jewish people and to assist the student in taking his/her place in the Jewish community.
Congregation Shearith Israel Family Center
The Family Center is dedicated to enriching and nurturing your family’s Jewish identity and family values. This unique project in the Dallas Jewish Community targets families and the Jewish community at large with newborns to children of 8 years of age. Age and family appropriate programs are designed to meet the needs of our diverse population and enhance your experience on a religious, social and educational level.
Congregation Shearith Israel is a synagogue for lifelong learners. We have a wide range of Adult Education opportunities including year-long courses, drop-in classes that meet weekly, guest speakers and more. We have an Adult Education Commission whose mission is to maximize the adult learning opportunities in our community. We strive to have multiple points of entry into Jewish learning.
The Kesher Program supports students with special needs to maximize their religious school education. Social and academic progress is closely monitored and personalized goals are set for students.
