“Tradition taught with creativity and laughter is a joy to behold.”

Welcome to Shir Hadash Religious School! Here's why you should choose us:

  • We inspire students to care, question, and think deeply about Judaism, the Jewish community and their own personal Jewish identity.

  • We engage students with Judaism through both tradition and creativity.

  • We encourage and guide students to explore the meaning and relevance of ethics, Jewish history, holidays, God, Torah, and Israel.

  • Rabbi Eitan Weiner-Kaplow interacts with every grade each week, and teachers and students form close and trusting bonds.

  • Rabbi Eitan works with each student to create an individualized bar or bat mitzvah that embraces his or her strengths and talents.

  • We are progressive, innovative, engaging, and nurturing.

  • Check out our new curriculum, including an innovative new approach to Hebrew language learning called Hebrew Through Movement.

  • It’s hard to believe, but we do all of this in just one day a week, Sundays from 9:45 a.m to 12:15 p.m.

  • Shir Hadash has always been an inclusive community, therefore, we will work with individual families to create a virtual option for your children if one is needed. We will continue to employ the same progressive, innovative, engaging, and nurturing curriculum no matter which venue you choose.
