Children’s Programs

We sukkotenthusiastically support our families in their pursuit of bringing Jewish values into their homes and into their lives through a variety of formal and informal educational opportunities.  We have a loving and dedicated staff committed to providing every student with an exceptional educational experience.  As a part of our program, we also create opportunities for students and parents to connect with each other and to form bonds of friendship within our temple community. 

Students study Torah, prayer, ethics, values, holidays, and Israel.  Students also study Jewish culture through music, dance, games and cooking.  Sleepovers, retreats, holiday celebrations, and social gatherings round out our educational experiences.

Our formal education opportunities include Religious School for Transitional Kindergarten – 8th grade students and Sababa for our High Schoolers. Learn more about Sababa here https://templeisraelstockton.com/young-adult/
