Shearith Israel offers the optimal environment for truly engaged learning through the Weitzman Family Religious School (WFRS) for children in Kindergarten through High School.
The school nurtures the development of engaged Jewish souls in the context of a loving community where we make positive memories, foster friendships and help students gain a sense of belonging.
WFRS students explore, discover, and expand their Jewish identity and community involvement by learning about Jewish values and customs and living a meaningful Jewish life. WFRS strives to create this environment of connection by learning that relies on all senses and dynamic teaching addressing student’s physical, social, emotional, ethical and spiritual needs. All of this combines to foster a sense of love and passion for Judaism.
WFRS is led by our Director of Education, Sarah Lipinsky who has a passion for working with all students and a special knowledge of the challenges faced by students with special needs.
