TE Special Programs


TE Tots

Our youngest students, aged 9mo – 3 years participate in TE Tots, a Jewish themed morning of music, movement and art. Toddlers bring an adult of their choice to participate for 45 minutes approximately twice per month. TE Tots meets on Sundays from 10:00-10:45am.


TE Tot Shabbat

This new Friday morning program is a Shabbat-themed class of singing, learning and moving with your little one. It compliments our Sunday morning Tots program. The class meets twice a month from 10 - 10:45am.  Tots 6 months-3 years are invited with a parent or other adult. There is no charge.


Students in 10th grade have the unique experience of learning with Rabbi Hersh each week. Not only does this foster a personal relationship between the Rabbi and the students, it also helps students explore their personal Judaism in relation to the rest of the world. During the first part of the morning, the Confirmation Class serve as Madrichim (assistants) in our pre-K through 9th grade classes; giving them responsibility to teach the younger children.



Students who have been confirmed are always welcomed home to Temple Emanuel. The young adults can continue to be Madrichim (student teachers) in the classroom, tutor Hebrew students or help in any way in our Religious School. Post-Confirmation gatherings are scheduled monthly or as appropriate for that particular class.



For the 3 Sundays between Martin Luther King and Presidents’ Days we offer a special program based on a general Jewish theme. This year we are having a Science related theme: Sci- Chai. Students in grades 1 – 10 pick the topic of their choice and learn in ‘family’ style groupings. Winterim culminates with a school wide program that demonstrates what each class has learned.
