There is a parking lot entrance off of Effie, and gate codes are required (provided upon enrollment). We may also meet around town in parks, people’s homes and cafes when it is appropriate to the lesson. Kindergarten - 8th grades. Our Mission Simcha – Focus on the joy of learning and Jewish identity Kehillah - Create a community where families will engage in and celebrate Jewish life Dor l’dor - Engage in multi-generational learning and develop family rituals and connections that reflect our individual beliefs Historia - Understand the history of the Jewish people, and the influence it has on our present and future Tarbut - Immerse in Jewish arts & culture Tzedek - Act upon our tradition’s commitment to justice, both within our community & the greater world She’elah - Encourage an open environment for questioning, while exploring a variety of perspectives of the Jewish tradition Our Approach We use the Responsive Classroom model for learning, where social interaction and process are equally as important as academic learning. We encourage positive teacher language, avoid rewards systems, and establish self-rules for the classroom. We are supporters of interfaith marriage, and any families of varying backgrounds who are choosing to explore Jewish heritage. When discussing lifecycle events we work toward reimagining rituals for the modern family, including the open support of gay marriage and single parents. While G-d is often a character in Jewish story or the center of Jewish prayers, we do not impose a theistic belief on our students. We give students options and keep ideas open, while remaining truthful to the content. Stories from the Torah are taught as mythology with historical context. Ethics are socially focused, rather than externally imposed. G-d is part of our intellectual discussion, but not our moral dictator. We examine how human beings benefit from morality, such as: Shalom Bayit (peace in the home), Tikkun Olam (Repairing the world), and Hachnasat orchim (Welcoming guests). We believe in providing all people with accessibility to Jewish history, culture and community. read less

Students attend a core class that covers a specific topic for each grade. Students discuss anti-Semitism, Bioethics, cults, the Holocaust, modern Jewish heroes and other relevant issues in terms of the Jewish ethical, moral and legal response according to Jewish law. Through discussions about current events in Israel, they gain a better understanding of Israeli government and politics. They also have a choice of electives, including self-defense, ceramics, scrapbooking, Jewish videos and Judaism through science fiction and fantasy, Bible studies, Israeli dancing, Jewish cooking, drama and more. Dinner seminars are a highlight of the Confirmation Program. Parents are invited to join students to hear various speakers provide valuable information about current topics. The 10th grade students lead Shavuot Services at which time they are confirmed. Temple Etz Chaim Religious School was selected to be one of five religious schools for the southern California region to pilot the curriculum called “Facing History and Ourselves.” The subject matter is an in depth exploration into the Holocaust and human behavior. The Post Confirmation Program (11-12) provides students with an opportunity to continue their Jewish education while remaining involved in synagogue life. Students study Torah, discuss current events and explore ethical issues with Rabbi Spiegel. The format of the class allows students to express themselves candidly in a non-judgmental environment. The program was originally conceived after students leaving the Confirmation Program asked how they could continue their studies at Temple Etz Chaim. read less

They are: Chagim: Shabbat & Holidays; Am Yisrael: Jewish Identity; K'lal Yisrael: Community & History; Eretz Yisrael: Land of Israel; Talmud Torah: Jewish Literature; Ivrit V-T'Filah: Hebrew & Prayer. These provide the roots of your child's education and Jewish identity. When we tend to these roots your child can have a strong Jewish identity and a deep understanding of Judaism. Material is age-appropriate and allows for a "spiral" of learning where concepts are developed on a deeper level each year. In addition, students hold weekly t'filah (services) and enjoy the talents of our specialists in the fields of Rikud (Israeli dance) and Shira (music). Students can participate in a variety of field trips such as the Zimmer Museum and social action projects.
