Important message from Ilan Adar, Sept. 24: 

Because of the continuing need to ensure everyone’s health and safety due to COVID-19, it is paramount that the information and procedures included in the newly adopted COVID-19 protocols are clear and provide all of us with the comfort level needed to bring our children to in-person school. Therefore, I (with the support of our Board of Trustees) made the difficult decision to have school and an important parent’s meeting online via Zoom this coming Sunday, Sept. 26. We will join in-person on Wednesday, Sept. 29, for our 3rd -7th grade classes; and on Sunday, Oct. 3, for all.

Please note the following schedule for this Sunday: 

9:30-9:50 am: 
All, parents included, meet via Zoom #836 0161 2763. (Use Temple Sinai passcode, included in Ilan's Friday email.)

9:50 am: 
Students join their classes via zoom link provided by the teachers. During class, teachers will closely review the COVID-19 protocol with their students. 
Parents stay (same zoom link as the short welcome program) to hear and ask questions or receive clarifications about the information and procedures included in the protocol. Please read it before this meeting.



School of Jewish Life and Learning

Train up a child in the way he/she should go and even when he/she is old he/she will not depart from it. 
–Proverbs 22:6

Our School of Jewish Life and Learning serves kids from preschool through 12th grade, with age-appropriate curricula blending the arts with academics, as well as experiential and traditional learning.


  • Experiential enrichment electives
    All of our students choose hands-on electives and, most importantly, each elective is attended by students in multiple grades simultaneously. Through activities such as cooking, singing, meditation, stitching, poetry, improv theater and more, students explore multiple avenues to Jewish identity and become part of a learning community that crosses age groups.  
  • Family programs
    Our school year is marked by family programs that establish strong bonds between our Jewish experience in the temple, the school, and the home. 

  • ShinShinim
    We foster relationships and mutual learning among our students and Israeli youths through the ShinShinim program, administered locally by the Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester. ShinShinim are Israeli high school graduates selected as cultural ambassadors, who can bring to diaspora youth a lively, personal, first-hand, and modern view of Israeli society.
