Rafi Schwartz Religious School

Mission Statement

The role of Rafi Schwartz Religious School is to help foster an appreciation and awareness of Judaism in all its facets. Our school seeks to:

  • Promote the development of a Jewish identity - a belief in God, an understanding of Torah, Jewish history, philosophy, values, and culture;
  • A knowledge of Hebrew - ranging from the understanding of the prayer book and significant Jewish texts to conversational skills;
  • A comprehension of the meaning of Jewish ceremonies, traditions and life-cycle events; and
  • A long-term commitment to support actively and participate meaningfully in Jewish life.

In order to achieve these goals, Rafi Schwartz Religious School promotes an on-going partnership that includes students, school, synagogue, professionals, parents, and members of the Jewish community at large.
