At the Weitzman Family Religious School (WFRS) we instill students with a love of Judaism and learning, and a powerful connection to Israel. We seamlessly weave Jewish learning throughout our educational programs, helping students develop the skills and knowledge necessary to observe holiday rituals, participate fully in services, and read Hebrew.
Students at every grade level gain an understanding and knowledge or prayers, holidays, history, ethics, and learn the tools to explore Jewish questions and issues relevant to their lives. We incorporate art, music, and hands-on learning for all students. Our curriculum is continuously evolving to best meet the needs of our students and families. This student-centered approach to instruction offers innovative, interactive lessons that encourage connection, fun, and learning while students build and maintain a tight-knit peer community.
At WFRS we understand Judaism is not just meant to be studied; it is meant to be lived. Our educational program is built on experiential learning that emphasizes students taking part in and creating their own learning opportunities.
Our engaging program consists of Shabbat and holiday worship, experiential programs, art, music, and family education in addition to academics. Parents are vital partners with the school in supporting its overall goals and in fostering an environment in which Jewish education and practice are valued. Various Shabbat and family experiences complement the religious school education. We want our children to develop positive attitudes toward Jewish tradition and Jewish values.
WFRS offers a stimulating and nourishing environment where learning is for everyone —and additional resources are available for students of all needs.
We hope your family will join us to create meaningful lasting memories, cultivates a love of Judaism, and supports intentional Jewish living.
